The Representation of New Netherland: Concerning Its Location, Productiveness and Poor Condition is a book written by Adriaen Van Der Donck in 1849. The book provides a detailed account of the Dutch colony of New Netherland, which was located in what is now the northeastern part of the United States. Van Der Donck describes the location of the colony, highlighting its strategic position at the mouth of the Hudson River, which made it an important center for trade and commerce. He also discusses the natural resources of the region, including its fertile soil, abundant forests, and valuable beaver pelts. However, the book also highlights the poor condition of the colony, including its lack of infrastructure, inadequate defenses, and the mistreatment of Native American populations. Van Der Donck argues that these issues are hindering the growth and success of the colony and proposes solutions to address them. Overall, The Representation of New Netherland provides a unique historical perspective on the early colonization of the United States and sheds light on the challenges faced by European settlers in the New World.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
