Description

Nuremburg; Created to encourage German emigration to America, Homann's map contains an elaborate cartouche stressing wealth and riches. A prosperous gentleman oversees a full tobacco warehouse, gold, and natural resources. German settlements are named, and the area covered extends from Connecticut to the Carolinas. The map appears as no. 27 in Homann's Atlas Novus. A popular map, it was widely distributed throughout the eighteenth century. --From This New Founde Lande: The Henry & Kaye Spalding Map Collection at Hampden-Sydney College, 2008.
