Laurentii Bay, New Engelland New York New Yersey und Pensilvania, Virginia und Maryland, Carolina nebsteinem Theil von Florida". Text in Latin, English and German. Some foxing around the margins and some creases but otherwise a nice copy. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century who served as geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers. Their continued success with maps such as this one proves the enduring value of Homann's work.

Dear Sir, For three days I received Reynard the Fox (goethe, Arnold). The package was in good order and the book in perfect health. It fits very well my Reynard (and fable) collection. Thanks. - Wim G.
