Laborador Coast and Arctic Chart - 1680

Amsterdam: Frederick de Wit, 1680.

(Septemtrionaliora Americae à Groenlandia, per Freta Davidis et Hudson, ad Terram Novam ) From Orbis maritimus of te Zeeatlas. A nautical chart of the North Atlantic based on Van Loon's chart of 1666. An excellent early depiction of Greenland, the Laborador Coast, the Northern Canadian Islands which had yet to be accurately mapped like Baffin. Of note is the erroneous "Great Bay" adjacent to James Bay. The chart is marked with numerous rhumb lines common to nautical maps, several ship vignettes, including one battle off the Laborador Coast, and two decorative cartouches, with the chart title in Latin and Dutch, respectively. vg+/--.
