Publisher : Printed Colloured and Sould by John Overton at ye White Horse neere the Fountaine Tavern Without Newgate.
A rare separately published English produced of the Americas. This is the second state of the map issued c.1671. Overton derived this map primarily from his two chief English rivals, Robert Walton, Thomas Jenner and as noted in the title, Nicolaes Visscher (Pieter van den Keere.) He used Walton’s (Burden #330) map for the decorative borders and large inset map of the polar regions, Jenner’s (Burden #393) for the cartography, and van den Keere's for the border illustrations, which depict natives, explorers, and city views. A beautiful map. Maps
