The map includes Lange (Long) Island, Manathans (Manhattan) Island, Nieu Amsterdam, Staaten Island, Zuydt (East) River, and similar detail around the Cape Cod and New England Coastline. Nice detail in the eastern Caribbean. Excellent detail on the South American coastline, especially the mouth of the Amazon.
