Te Delft : By Reinier Boitet, 1746
In 1721 Hans Egede, with the permission of the united kingdom of Denmark-Norway, founded a trading company and a Lutheran mission near present-day Nuuk (Godthåb). He had hoped to rediscover and reestablish the original Norse colonies on Greenland. He published the first book in an Inuit language in 1742.This translation into Dutch was based on the second and longer Danish publication of this work, which appeared in 1741.Cf. Hans Egede, Det gamle Grønlands nye perlustration, Copenhagen, 1741 (#01609-1) for the original version of this map.
