"The map is largely derived from Colom's chart, although with some omissions and additions. The key to the various names of the Hudson River is left out, as is the duplicate use of Jamestown. Amongst the new nomenclature can be found Gilfort on the north shore of Long Island Sound. The coastline is virtually identical with the exception of that part south of Cape Henry, where at first glance he appears to draw upon Jacobsz, until one notices Chesipiook at the northern end of the Outer Banks. This usage dates back to those derived from the de Bry-White map of 1590." (Burden)
First state with the date 1660 in the cartouche.
