Description:

Fine early map of the East Coast of North America, first published by Bertius and Jodocus Hondius Jr. in 1616.

The map extends from Cape May, Florida, in the South to Labrador, deriving from the Jodocus Hondius World Map of 1611.

The map over-emphasizes the coastal regions of Virginia and Nova Scotia, thereby distorting the remaining geographical details. 

One of the earliest obtainable maps of the East Coast of North America.
