Date: 1730 (published) Augsburg
Original Size: 20 x 23 inches (50 x 58.5 cm)
Known as one of the most recognizable maps of the Northeastern U.S. this particular example of the third state of the Novi Belgii series does not disappoint in terms of sheer aesthetic beauty. The map is drawn from Jansson’s map of the northeast from 1651 which was later added to by Nicolas Visscher.
This example by Matthias Seutter features an updated view of the city of New York which is titled “Neu Jork sive New Amsterdam,” with a key to the vignette just below written in Latin. Crowning this view of the former Dutch colony is a scene depicting natives and gods presenting food and gifts to King George II. Unlike previous editions of this map, this third state contains engraved boundary lines separating New England, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Previous editions left the political boundaries to the colorists.
The interior of the region is filled with forests, mountains, native tribe locations, pilgrim settlements, and a multitude of vignettes depicting indigenous animals. Two forts punctuate the left portion of a map are balanced by a well-placed compass rose in the Atlantic.
