Virginia Item et Floridae Americae Privinciarum, nova Descriptio
Amsterdam, 1609. No Binding. Near Fine. 13 ¾ x 19 ¼ inches. Fine original color; reinforced along margins, else excellent. A very attractive, original color example of one of the most richly engraved maps of the southeast United States. "Its influence, both direct and indirect, extended into the middle of the eighteenth century" (Cumming). The map assembled geographic knowledge of the Southeast that was largely derived from surveys conducted during the earliest French and English attempts to colonize the area, specifically the doomed Ribaut/ Laudonniere colony in North Florida and South Carolina and the equally unsuccessful, English Roanoke settlement. Decorative details include Indian villages and figures, native and European vessels, sea monsters, and flora and fauna Cumming 26; Burden 151.
