Content : Full size photograph of manuscript map in the Biblioteca Medicea-Laurenziana of Florence, Italy.

Content : See also Deák 45.

Content : The Castello plan is the earliest known plan of New Amsterdam, and the only one dating from the Dutch period. This drawing and the Manatus map of the island reproduced earlier (entry 31) are among the most important topographical documents that have survived from the period of the Dutch rule of New York.

Content : According to Deák "This drawing was probably copied by an unknown draftsman around 1665-1670 from the survey made by Jacques Cortelyou in the summer of 1660, now lost."
