Treasures of the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library
Allard, Carel, 1648-approximately 1709
Totius Neobelgii nova et accuratissima tabula
1 printed map on 2 joined sheets ; 51 x 59 cm
This map's image is a virtual duplicate of Joannes Jansson's "Belgii Novi Angliae," circa 1660, and some believe there was a common (Danckers) prototype. This map, of which only a few copies are known, is quite similar to the Visscher map with the most important difference being in the inset view of New York. The Allard view is a new engraving – the fifth in the sequence of engraved views of New York – made from a new drawing. When translated into English the caption identifies the view as “of New-Amsterdam lately called New York, and now retaken by the Netherlands on 14 Aug. 1673.” Later issues carry a third line saying that the city is “finally again surrendered to the English.” Black ink on paper. Pencil note, bottom margin: "1674 3rd state Stokes I pl. 16, p. 221."
