Carte Des Possessions Angloises & Francoises ... : R. & J. Ottens

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine example of an uncommon map published by Reiner and Josua Ottens in Amsterdam reflecting the current French and English claims in North America. The map repeats much of the detail of the famous Mitchell large scale map, published in 1755. This example is apparently a rare early variant of Seller & Van Ee 58, lacking the 1755 date and having only 1 of the 3 keys generally found on the map, suggesting that this edition was likely an early or proof example, which may pre-date Mitchell's map. The Ottens Family were active in the Amsterdam map trade from about 1720 to 1750, mainly re-issuing earlier material and lesser atlases.
