A NEWFOUNDLAND, od. TERRA NOVA S. LAURENTII BAY, die Fisch-Bank, ACADIA, nebst einem Theil NEW SCHOTLAND
Newfoundland, or Terra Nova, St. Laurence Bay, the Fishing Banks, Acadia with a portion of New Scotland
While the title is in German, all of the text on the map is in English. This map is based after Herman Moll's map of the area from 1736.
Walter notes a publication date circa 1757. Other sources differ greatly in the publication date and the atlas in which it appears. Homann Heirs was well known for re-using plates and maps across publications. Because our copy has been skillfully cut from the sheet on which it was published, it is impossible to tie it to a specific publication. Uses the Azores as the prime meridian.
