Melville Library’s Special Collections Celebrates New York Archives Week

map
This map of New Netherland and New England derives from Adriaen Block’s 1614 hand-drawn chart. The chart defined Manhattan and Long Island as islands after Block’s explorations of Long Island Sound and coastal waters up to Cape Cod and it served as the cornerstone for Dutch claims to the lower Northeast.
Blaeu, Willem Janszoon, Joan Blaeu, and Willem Janszoon Blaeu.
Nova Belgica et Anglia Nova. [Amsterdami]: [I. and C. Blaeu?], 1640.
