Virginia Et Florida : G. Mercator / J. Hondius

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This map was published in Historia Mundi or Mercator's atlas, in 1637. The map of the South East States, for the Atlas Minor, may lack, through limitations of space, the decorative embellishments of the original in earlier large atlases, but numerous early Indian villages are described, and here is "Chesepiooc", which was shortly to give its name to Chesapeake Bay, before Jamestown was founded in 1607. The "Apalacci Montes" text refers to the presence of gold and silver, and the fictitious Lacus Dulcis also features. English text to verso.
