Blaeu and the WIC

Dedicated to Albertus Conradi van der Burch, director of the Westindian Company (WIC). Cartographically the map draws on the extremely rare chart by Hessel Gerritz, c. 1631.

The area of coverage is exactly the same with the exception of Blaeu’s addition of the west coast of Central America. (Burden)
