Burden 317 (the present is in the first state with Fort Christina on the Delaware River named twice)

Catalogue Note

A rare view of Manhattan.

Often referred to as the van der Donck map (as it first appeared in the second edition of that author's Beschryvinge van Nieuw-Nederlandt). The map depicts the Native American as well as Dutch settlements in some detail and contains what is accepted as only the second published view of the city.  An unusually fine example of a map that is scarce in commerce, especially so in the first state.
