Virginia Et Nova Francia : J. Hondius / P. Bertius

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This rare and striking map of the East coast of North America appeared in the Latin text "P. Bertii Tabularum geographicarum contractarum libri septem", Jodocus Hondius Junior. Interestingly, the names of native tribes are included on the map. The map is one of the earliest to focus on the region and, in its relatively accurate definition of the Virginia and Newfoundland coasts compared with those between these areas, indicates those areas best known to European powers.
