VIRGINIA NOVA VIRGINIAE TABULA

Code: M2298

Cartographer: OGILBY John

Date: 1671 Amsterdam

Size: 30*36.5cms

Decorative example of Ogilby's edition of Smith's map of the Virginia & Chesapeake region.

The map is based upon the earlier maps by Hondius and Blaeu, a bit smaller, but with 3 large cartouches, one of which includes fascinating indigenous animals, including a llama and horned long haired sheep. Smith's map of the Chesapeake region was the basic prototype of all regional maps until Augustine Herman's exceedingly rare 4 sheet map published in London in 1673. Tooley notes that the map derives from the first state of the Smith map, and therefore lacks the longitude lines added in later states.
