Catalogue Note

The famed John Speed map of New England (though somewhat of a misnomer as he was deceased by the time it was issued). It remains a crucial depiction of the increased Anglo influence over what had been largely a Dutch colony. The text on the verso describes not only the area shown on the map but in fact the entire East Coast to Florida, with particular emphasis on the habits and dress of Native Americans.
