Lost and Found: Rediscovering a Seventeenth Century Map of New Jersey
This narrative details the first complete map of New Jersey; one that identified the locations of settlements of indigenous people. Created by Hessel Gerritsz, a Dutch master cartographer, this relatively unknown 1616 map of New Jersey does not appear in the four major publications that exhibit New Jersey maps, published between 1973 and 2014.
