Nova Anglia Septentrionali

27 September 2015

Recently acquired this beautiful and popular map of North-East America: Nova Anglia Septentrionali Americae implantata Anglorumque coloniis florentissima.
A very attractive and popular map of New England, in a good, clear impression.

First published by J.B. Homann in his Atlas Novum at Nuremberg, in 1716. Homann was the leading German cartographer in the 18th century. During this period his cartographic image of New England, based on a combination of earlier sources, was intended both to delight and instruct the would-be immigrant who might consult this map before making the journey across the Atlantic.

Our map is the third state from ca. 1730, with Manhattan labeled as “N. Loch” and the privilege removed from the cartouche. Reference: McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps, #724.1. Original coloured copper engraving. Size in cm: 50×60. Framed.

Price: please enquire.
