Manatus, gelegen op de Noot riuier, 1639
Manhattan, situated on the North river, 1639

This 1639 map is the earliest portrayal of Manhattan and its environs. The map may have been drawn by Johannes Vingboons, cartographer to the Prince of Nassau for the West India Company of Holland. This map, possibly done to encourage Dutch settlement, depicts plantations and small farms. The list of references includes a grist mill, two sawmills and "Quarters of the Blacks, the Company's Slaves." See

For Lux I rearranged things a bit, to make it a playable map. The names of the territories are also from the 1639 map, but the text was difficult to read, and could have been misinterpreted in some cases.

The Picture on the bottom is also from Johannes Vingboons, but from 1665, showing Nieuw Amsterdam from the south.
