Mortier Pierre
CARTE PARTICULIERE DE VIRGINIE, MARYLAND, PENNSILVANIE, La Nouvelle JARSEY Orient et Occidentale Publisher Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) Printed on thick paper, in very good condition, original publisher colours in outline. only little brownish, size of the sheet: 62 x 98 cm.. The scale in the lower left corner reads: "Echelle/ Lieues de France et d'Angleterre./ Lieues d'Allemagne./ Lieues d'Espagne et de Portugal./ A Amsterdam Chez P. Mortier, Avec Privilege." This magnificent chart may have been intended more as a showpiece than as a working chart. This map appeared in Pierre Mortier's "Suite de Neptune Francois," 1700. This example is the first state of this map. This map is thought to be the work of either Nicholas Sanson or A.H. Jaillot. It is largely based on a very important and rare map of Virginia and Maryland by Augustine Herrman, published in 1673. The chart includes soundings in the bays and rivers.
