A rare map published in Colom's ''Zee Atlas'' is recognized as one of the first navigational charts of New Netherlands. The chart covers the North American coast line from Cape Hatteras on the southwest to Cape Cod on the northeast, encompassing the Dutch settlements on the Delaware and Hudson Rivers. Interestingly, the chart also identifies English settlements in the Chesapeake Bay area and New England including the fledgling communities of Salem, Boston, and Plymouth. Although Colom's ''Zee Atlas'' was only issued in a few editions, this chart served as a precedent for other Dutch maritime chart makers including Hendrick Doncker, Pieter Goos, Joannes van Loon, Arent Roggeveen, and Jacob Colom, Arnold's father. The Coloms were two of the first Dutch publishers to produce large-format world maritime atlases. Original outline color. Circa 1656.
