Description

With small variations, this is a copy of Robert Morden's influential map, extending from Baye St.Matheo to just north of the Albermarle River. With a detail inset of the town of Charlestown which is, erroneously, given two locations on the main map. Indicating many place-names for newly-founded settlements, estates and plantations.
Compass rose with system of rumb lines on lower part.
The map is from a Dutch edition of De L'Isle's work entitled, Atlas Nouveau, Contenant Toutes Les Parties Du Monde, Ou sont exactement Remarquées les Empires, Monarchies, Royaumes, Etats, Republiques &c. Par Guillaume de l'Isle. Premier Géographe de sa Majesté. It was published by Covens and Mortier, brothers-in-law who continued the firm established by Pierre Mortier.
