Notes

The fourth and final state of this iconic chart of the coast of New York, with the main title-cartouche draped in cloth, a ship added to the south of long Island, and the scale of miles now withing a ruled border.

The inset which occupies the top third of the chart: De Noord Rivier anders R. Manhattans off Hudsons Rivier Genaamt in t’Groodt De Versche Rivier int Groodt’, is the first engraved chart of the Hudson River.
