New York Manhattan Island ~ Year c.1684

Title:  Novi Belgii Novaeque Angliae Nec Non Pennsylvaniae et Partis Virginiae Tabula multis in locis emendata . . .

Attractive and much sought after map, with an inset view of the Dutch colony on Manhattan Island, the second published view of New York, after Hartgers view of 1651. The cartographic information is based upon Jansson’s map of 1650. In 1655, Danckerts copied Nicholas Visscher, who in turn utilized Jansson’s map, with its vignettes of animals and Indian life, and added this now famous view of New Amsterdam, showing the Battery and Dutch buildings on the waterfront.

Second state of Justus Danckert’s map of New Netherlands, including a view of New Amsterdam, now also called “Nieuw Yorck.”

The Danckerts were a family of Dutch engravers and geographers who produced geographic materials, including a series of original atlases. Initially, Justus I Danckerts (1635-1701) was a book and print publisher based in Amsterdam. His great-uncle, Cornelis Danckerts de Rij, (1561-1634) was a surveyor who produced a Kaert-boeck showing various views of Amsterdam. His brother, Dancker Danckerts (1634-1666), was a skilled engraver who produced several maps. Justus I was most likely influenced by both their work when he followed his father, Cornelis I Danckerts (1603-1656), into the publishing business.
