    17th Century Map of New England by Cartographer Francis Lamb. 21" x 17" hand-colored engraved map on laid paper, titled "A Map of New England and New York. Sold by Thos. Basset in Fleet Street and Richard Chiswell in St Pauls Churchyard." The inaccuracies of topography and the misspellings are quite charming. We have "New Jarsey" and the "North Sea" (in contrast to the Atlantic Ocean). The area is densely populated with tribes of Native Americans, all of which are noted with similarly archaic spellings. Light discoloration from old tape repair to partial separation at bottom of central fold. Vibrant colors. Handsomely matted and ready for framing.
