Costello's New Amsterdam - 1660
In 1660, the surveyor Jacque Cortelyou created a city map of lower Manhattan settlement which he named New Amsterdam. This map was sold to Cosimo III de' Medicii the Grand Duke of Tuscany. After more than 2 centuries, it was discovered in the Villa de Costello in Florence in 1900 by John Wolcott Adam and Issac Newton Phelps Stokes, who then redrafted and published this map in Phelps Stoke's six volume survey The Iconography of Manhattan Island.
