Description

London; This is the last major map based on Augustine Herrman's 1673 map of Virginia and Maryland, but unlike earlier maps, it is oriented with north at the top. The map was first published by Christopher Browne in 1685. This 3rd state includes the dedication to the Earl of Orkney, Lord George Hamilton, (absentee) governor of Virginia from 1710 to 1737. As in most maps of this period, settlements appear along the rivers and east coast. Revised by I. Senex, it appeared as Map 30 in Senex's A New General Atlas, published in 1721. --From This New Founde Lande: The Henry & Kaye Spalding Map Collection at Hampden-Sydney College, 2008.
