New York - New England by Arnoldus Montanus. 1671

Arnoldus Montanus (c. 1625-1683)

Arnoldus Montanus was a Dutch teacher and author. He published books on theology, history, and geography. His most famous book is De Nieuwe en Onbekende weereld, of beschryving van America en 't Zuid-Land. (The New and Unknown World: or Description of America and the Southland). It was initially intended for publication in 1670. However, delays in acquiring the information he needed deferred publication until the following year. It was printed by Jacob de Meurs, who had an agreement with John Ogilby to produce an English edition which appeared later in the same year. Jacob de Meurs printed a German edition translated by Dr Olfert Dapper in 1673.

The work included several engraved maps of the regions.
