DONCKER, HENDRICK. 1626-1699.
Pas caerte vande Caribische Eylanden, vande Barbados Tot Aende Bocht van Mexico. Amsterdam: [1672].
Engraved chart of the Caribbean, Mexico and the southern states, hand-colored in outline, 440 x 540 mm. Decorated with compass rose and numerous rhumb lines. Matted and framed.


This map first appeared in Doncker's Zee-Atlas, published in 1659. Burden Mapping of North America 339, 2nd state.
 “This chart appeared in the first edition of Hendrick Doncker’s Zee-Atlas, of which no surviving example is known” -- Burden.
Strongly based on the famous Gerritsz’ chart of c.1631, this chart “illustrates Doncker’s independent thought towards its content. Two distinct features are the pronounced easterly sweep of the south-east coast, and an unusually prominent R. d. S. Petro feeding an enlarged Apalachee Bay” -- Burden.
