Description

Nice example of Hendrik Doncker's rare map of a portion of the East Coast of America, covering the North America from the Carolinas to New Foundland (Long Island shown as an Island), the Eastern Caribbean (including Hispaniola and Puerto Rico), Bermuda and the Coast of South America from Venezuela to Pernambuco in Brazil.

The chart also shows the Azores and Canaries. East is oriented at the top. Block Island is named.

The first edition of this chart was issued in 1660, with subsequent editions issued over the next 20 years.
