Catalogue Note

"The foundation map of New England cartography, the one that gave it its name and the first devoted to the region. " (Burden)

As originally issued in A description of New England: or the observations, and discoueries, of Captain John Smith (London: 1616) the present map is rare, as is the text it originally accompanied.  While many of the place names as provided by Prince Charles did not survive, River Charles and Plimouth most certainly did.
