The English colonies on the north-east seaboard of America

HOMANN, Johann Baptist.

Nova Anglia Septentrionali Americæ implantata Anglorumque coloniis florentissima.
Nuremberg, c.1725. Original body colour. 495 x 600mm.

Decorative map of New England, with Lake Champlain much too large. This map appeared at a time of high emigration from Germany to the Americas: it has been suggested that the large title cartouche, showing an Indian trading with a European surrounded by the wealth of the Americas, was an attempt to persuade more émigrés to seek their fortunes in the New World.
