Article descriptionCopper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash when published. 2nd state of Matthaeus Seutter's map of the East coast from Virginia up to Massachusetts and Main. Seutter's map of New York is based on Jansson's and Justus Dancker's map of New England. In Seutter's map the 'Restitio cartouche' has been replaced by a new one showing Indians and gods presenting tribute to an English nobleman. This is probably George II. The map includes the distinctive course of the Delaware River, showing it separate from the Hudson River. Below the title cartouche we do find now a panoramic city view of New York 'Neu Jorck sive Neu Amsterdam', with a detailed table of explanations in Latin names below. Some place names and notes on the map have been translated from Dutch in Latin and German names. This is also the first map to show by means of printed lines the boundaries of Massachusetts, New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
