19) Norumbega et Virginia. (Norumbega [i.e. North America] and Virginia.) 1597.
Mapmaker: Cornelius Wytfliet
A well-executed engraving depicting the northeastern American coastline as it was perceived by European geographers one hundred years after the discovery of the New World. Norumbega was a generic place name for all of North America that fell into disuse shortly after this map was issued. The map is one of the few published before 1612 that used the name Virginia, which was applied to all the territories claimed by England. Although New York Harbor appears on maps issued before this one, it is omitted here.
