1633 circa Joannes De Laet
$ 3,600.00

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.

Condition Description
Several tears at centerfold and at left side margin, with minor loss, restored on the verso. Thin spots reinforced on verso.
Burden 231.
