Only a tailed cherub marks the difference between this, the second state of Blaeu's map of Virginia, and the first state with tail-less cherub! This second state was first published in 1640 with editions thereafter. The map shows the interests of the French and British, whose arms are each depicted on the map, in the region at this time. Detail extends from the Chesapeake Bay in the north to "C.Francois" in the south and is based on Hondius' map of the region of 1606, although with geographical improvements (including a post Captain John Smith Chesapeake) where known, and the instantly recognisable, sophisticated Blaeu style.
