A finely engraved and elegant map of the south-eastern United States, encompassing present-day Virginia, Carolina and Georgia, that was published by the Blaeu family firm around 1638. Willem Blaeu has incorporated detail from Hondius' map of the region from 1606 with updated information from Hesel Gerritsz. The title cartouche is bordered by Native American figures and the mileage scale by two cherubim, one of whom has additional engraved detail indentifying this as the second state of the map, here in an early edition. This important map became the standard depiction of the South East and was copied by other mapmakers during the rest of the century.
