This uncommon map centered of the Chesapeake Bay region is based on Augustine Hermann's map of 1673 and Henry Popple's great map of 1733. Filled with detail, numerous early towns and villages are located. A symbol key graphically depicts Indian Houses and Plantations, and English Plantations. It is decorated with a title cartouche and compass rose. This is the second state, with plate No 95 below neatline at left.
