Illustrated by noted Dutch engraver, publisher, and cartographer Nicholas Visscher, this early depiction of New England shows the region in some of its earliest phases of settlement. The first English settlers established Plymouth Colony in 1620. A large number of puritans settled in the Boston and Salem regions, establishing farms, towns, and thriving fishing and whaling industries. By 1690 numerous towns, villages, and cities had been established throughout the Northeast, and the English colony was being transformed as settlers flocked from England and Western Europe.
Visscher is considered an essential link in early cartographical history, and his distinctive style and ornate flourishes make this piece immediately recognizable. His works represent the most advanced engravings of the time, and he is among the masters of Dutch cartography. The so-called Glorious Revolution in England in 1689 had the colony in a period of increasing desires for independence following the ousting of King James II. The colonies had implemented self-governing charters, were openly flouting the Navigation Acts and had established local militias that operated outside of the English Army. Following the Glorious Revolution, Royal Governors were appointed to nearly every colony creating tension between the colonists and the unelected officials.
The regional economy was growing in the seventeenth century due to an abundance of fertile land and was home to nearly one hundred thousand residents by the turn of the century. New England’s economy focused on self-sufficiency and small homesteads instead of relying on extensive trade networks.
