Delicately engraved map of the colonies from Albemarle Sound to the Alatamaha River. It probably owes its origin to an earlier map of the region by Emanuel Bowen. Numerous English settlements along the coast and Indian villages throughout, including a number west of the Appalachian Mountains. There is more detail in the area west of the Blue Ridge than in many other maps of the period. Decorative title cartouche. Attractively matted with museum materials.
