[5a]

From: William Hubbard The Present State Of New England. Being A Narrative Of The Troubles With The Indians In New England ..., London, 1677

Woodcut, with handcut lettering, 296 x 388mm.

That this map, the so-called 'Wine Hills' map belongs to the English edition is established by the type lettering used with, for example, the italic 'w' in the title also found in the text (demonstrated by Woodward).

This map is copied from the Boston edition, even to the extent of the woodblock cutter copying the type lettering of the original, even retaining the unevenness. A number of errors crept in during the re-cutting process, for example 'Sey-byook' (Sey-brook), 'Stonttoai' (Stoniton), 'Cauntry' (Country), 'Providene' (Providenc), 'Lancasten' (Lancaster'), 'Billeriea' (Billerica), 'Waburn' (Woburn), 'Newper' (Newport), 'Brodford' (Bradford), 'Haniton' (Hampton) 'Piseatequa' (Piscatequa), 'Caseo' (Casco'), 'Portsin' (Portsm) Ipswieh' (Ipswich), 'Wnie Hil's (read as Wine Hills, White Hills) (examples noted by Woodward, page 59-60).
