This beautiful, original-color map is the 3rd state of Joannes Janssonius' map of 1636, Nova Anglia Novvm Belgivm et Virginia. 
This is an influential map showing Dutch holdings between New England and Virginia.  Of particular importance, is the inclusion of the place names of "N. Amsterdam" and "Manbattes" (Manhattan), and, after De Laet’s rare map of 1630, is among the earliest appearances of these names on a map, according to Burden (p. 313). The Great Lakes area is represented by "Grand Lac". Details from New France south to present day North Carolina are shown and place names such as Pleymouth, Briston (Boston), Fort Orange, and Jamestown are identified.  The map is attractively decorated:  animals (bears, beavers, etc.) are on the map with ships in the Ocean, two compass roses, and a very attractive title cartouche flanked by two Indians.

Upon the death of Janssonius' heirs, Jansson van Waesberge, the copperplate that produced this map along with others were acquired at auction by Schenk and Valk.  The Janssonius' imprint on bottom right was then changed to "Amstelodami Apud G. Valk et P. Schenk".  A latitude and longitude grid was also added as well.  There is no text on the verso on the map.
