One of the earliest maps of the American East Coast

RUSCELLI, Girolamo.

Tierra Nueva.
Venice, Vincenzo Valgrisi, 1564, Italian edition. 185 x 260mm.

The Eastern Seaboard from Labrador to 'La Florida', with 'La Bremuda' for Bermuda. It shows the discoveries of Jacques Cartier's first voyage to Canada and Verrazzano's voyages around Cape Fear.

Engraved by Sanuto for Ruscelli's 'La Geographi di Claudio Tolomeo'. This example is from the first state (of three), with the platemark running off the top of the sheet; the crack in the printing plate near Bermuda that occurred by the 1562 edition is not very advanced.

BURDEN: 30: MANASEK: figures 4.15 to 4.18, showing differing states.
