Comments: Exquisite early map of the Northeast from the Delaware Bay to Quebec and the St. Lawrence River. Originally published in 1716 and reissued many times until 1784, this map denotes sea banks, soundings and Native American tribal regions. Beautiful decorative cartouche shows a European bartering with a Native for an animal pelt. They are surrounded by an elk, various tools and weapons, with a ship in the background. Minor overall wear, very light scattered foxing. Two small chips to lower edge. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century, including being geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers.
