Catalogue Note

An attractive map with an inset of Charleston Harbor, the mouths of the Ashley and Cooper Rivers, and showing the settlement before it was moved from the west bank of the Ashley. This copy in Burden's second state, with period hand-coloring.

An excellent copy of Burden's second state with the number "18" engraved at the lower left corner. Burden notes that the cartographer C.J. Vooght draws on unpublished sources for this map, but that the "southern regions still call upon old Spanish nomenclature ... The immediate Carolina coastline is ... compressed on a northerly axis and does not utilise the advances made in the Second Lords Proprietors map of 1682 ... The more southerly of the Outer Bank sounds differ from earlier depictions and Cape Hatteras is less prominent also. The soundings off the more northerly Outer Banks are from an unknown but presumably English source" (Burden).
