New England, with the 'Restitutio' prospect of New York

SEUTTER, Matthäus.

Recens Edita totius Novi Belgii, in America Septentrionali siti..
Augsburg, c.1735. Fine original colour. 505 x 585mm.

Printer's crease lower right, oterwise a very fine example.

A German version of the Jansson-Visscher 'Novi Belgi' map, here updated to reflect the political reality of Britain's control of the area. The view of New York is the 'Restitutio' view, celebrating the short Dutch re-occupation of the city 1673-74, but instead of Dutch allegory the cartouche shows tribute being offered to George II of Great Britain.
Seutter retains the vignettes of animals and Indian villages, but has engraved the boundaries of Massachusetts, New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, making this the first in the 'Nova Belgii' series with this feature. Visscher's naming of Boston as 'Briston' is retained, an error not corrected until Lotter's edition, c.1760.

MCC: 24, New Light on the Jansson-Visscher Maps of New England, 26, State ii of v.
