¤ This fine and scarce sea chart covers the central Atlantic and extends to include the Maritime Provinces, Antilles and the northwest coast of South America, east to the Azores, Cape Verde, Madeira and the Canary Islands. A pair of compass roses orient the map with north to the left, and rhumb lines cross the map.
"This map's coverage was originally devised by Theunis Jacobsz in c.1650; it is, however, derived from later derivatives. Goos appears to have drawn upon Hendrick Doncker of 1659 for his depiction of the North American coastline, but Joannes van Loon for the South American portion. Shortly after Goos altered the chart extensively, something that he virtually never did. These alterations drew upon the van Loon chart of 1661 with the exception of the St. Lawrence River. The coastlines of present day New jersey and Long Island are much improved. The Grand Banks and Newfoundland are also reconfigured. All of the Atlantic Islands are moved further east, and the Brazilian coastline is extended eastwards." (Burden)

¤ This is the first Dutch chart to focus on the Lesser Antilles. It covers the Windward and Leeward Isles from Puerto Rico to Trinidad and Margarita. Centered on a compass rose with north at right, the chart is less decorative than other maps by Blaeu, having instead a practical navigational chart appearance.
Only published in his "Atlas Maior" from 1662, therefore relatively rare. Krogt/ Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, Vol.II 9640:2.
