DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
Reproduction of 17th century map of the New World.
Map signed: "Dwight D. Eisenhower", 1p, 14½x10¼. Modern reproduction of a map of "America" from the original by Dutch engraver Pettus Schenk (1645-1715), who republished the Mercator-Hondius atlas. This copy was printed for the Holland-America Line. Holland-America was founded in 1873 as the Netherlands-America Steamship Company, a shipping and passenger line. Because it provided service to the Americas, it became known as Holland-America Line. The company's first ocean liner was the original Rotterdam, which sailed its maiden voyage from the Netherlands to New York City on Oct. 15, 1872. The line was a principal carrier of emigrants from Europe to the United States until well after the turn of the century, carrying 850,000 to new lives in the New World. Dwight D. Eisenhower's great-great-great-grandfather, Johann Nicol (Hans Nicolaus) Eisenhauer (1695-1760), born in the Palatinate (Germany), had emigrated with his three sons from Rotterdam on the ship Europa to Philadelphia, arriving November 17, 1741. So it is fair to assume that this map was the conception of the New World at the time his paternal descendants first came to America. Slightly soiled, folds, none touch signature. Fine condition.
