Catalogue Note

"One of the most significant cartographical milestones in colonial North American history [and] the most accurate map drawn in the sixteenth century of any part of that continent" (Burden). This is also the first map with "Virginia' in its title and the first map to name the Chesapeake Bay; it was issued in the first part of de Bry's Great, or American, Voyages, Thomas Hariot's account of his expedition to Virginia. Third state, with the initial 'E' effaced and the correct 'C' added to 'Chesepiooc.'
