Description

Map of the East Coast of North America, extending from Cape Cod to Newfoundland. De Laet’s map appeared in his seminal work on America, which is widely regarded as the most important and influential treatise on the subject published in the 17th Century. The map provides the best representations of the coastline and is referred to as "one of the foundation maps of Canada" and "the first printed map to include an accurate Prince Edward Island, and the earliest depiction of a north-south oriented Lake Champlain."
