Description

One of the earliest obtainable maps of the Southeastern United States.

De Laet's description of America is arguably the finest of the 17th Century. The map was almost certainly engraved by Hessel Gerritsz, based upon the work of Claesz in 1602 and Jacques Le Moyne's map of Florida, with nomenclature drrawn from Chaves map of 1584. An essential map for regional collectors.
