A visually appealing map of the East Coast of North America. It extends from the very north-easterly most point of the modern-day United States to the Chesapeake Bay in the south. At the bottom center is an illustration of New Amsterdam, modern-day New York. Importantly, this was one of the first images of the city, later editions would include an updated image showing the growth of this town. A small alphabetical key underneath shows points of interest in the city. Hugh Allard (1625-1691) was an engraver and publisher based in Amsterdam.
