Blaeu's version of the celebrated Smith map of Virginia in which the Chesapeake Bay area is seen with north oriented to the right of the page. A good example of one of the earliest Blaeu issues, from the "Appendix Theatri ...", of a plate acquired from the engraver Jodocus Hondius, which formed the nucleus of Blaeu's first world atlas. Based on the prototype by the Englishman, Captain John Smith, this map shows good detail of the region with numerous native american place names shown along the well-defined river systems, and with mountains and forests indicated clearly inland. At top right is a scene of Chief Powhatan's communal lodge and, at the right, the British Royal coat-of-arms and a full-length native american warrior. With minor restoration.
