  • Virginiæ partis australis, et Floridæ partis orientalis, interjacecentiumq. regionum Nova Descriptio.
  • Amsterdam: 1640.
  • Original color.
  • Unframed.


Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia and northern Florida, with the English and French Royal Arms marking their areas of influence. Although much of the information dates back to Le Moyne (1565) and White (1590), Blaeu has reshaped the coastline and added a few new details, for example, Jamestown and the Irish colony at Newport News on Chesapeake Bay.


It has been claimed that to the left of the French armorial is a depiction of Niagara Falls, based on Indian hearsay and so well out of place.
