This is a reduced version of Hondius' folio map of the same title. It was based on John White's Virginia and Jacques le Moyne's Florida as interpreted by Theodore de Bry. Numerous Indian villages are shown throughout and in the Apalacci Montes there is a notation concerning the presence of both gold and silver, and below lies the fictitious Lacus Dulcis, more commonly called Lake M...

This lovely map of the Southeast extends from the southern part of Chesapeake Bay to northern Florida. This is the first state of Jansson's map, which is virtually identical to Blaeu's map of 1638. Cartographically it improves on the Hondius map of 1606, on which it was derived, with Chesapeake Bay correctly indicated as a large bay and the Carolinas and Georgian coasts depicted more accurately....

The First Map of the Carolinas Published Outside of England

Click on the Title for details and to BID on this lot.  (Size: 18.4 x 22.3 inches)

This map depicts present-day North and South Carolina, and was the first map of the Carolinas published outside of England. Despite the title giving credit to Nicolas Sanson, it was derived from Thornton, Morden and Lea's map of 1685 with very few changes. The subtle modifications include place names translated into French, and a previous key naming various plantations around Charleston was repl...

This rarely seen map depicts the Southeastern United States as far west as Mobile Bay and north to the border between Carolina and Virginia. The Florida peninsula is fragmented into several large islands. Florida has a large extension that completely cuts off Georgia leaving it as only a small sliver on the coast. Louisiana is to the west and Carolina occupies a large area north. Locates Pensa...

This is an interesting Italian version of D'Anville's map of the Southeast. It is most notable for the incorrect boundaries showing a huge Louisiana extending eastward to include present-day Kentucky, Mississippi, and Alabama. The boundary between the Carolinas and Florida is shown at the Alatamaha ou George R, and Georgia is not delineated, but is named (Georgie). In the left bor...
