Homann's magnificent map of the British colonies of Maryland, Virginia and Carolina, extending from Lake Erie to the Atlantic (called here "the Sea of Virginny") and also encompassing New Jersey and parts of New York, Pennsylvania, and "Florida" (actually the Appalachian regions of what are now Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee). This beautifully detailed map includes many Indian place names and marine soundings, as well as a splendid title cartouche, depicting trade between Europeans and natives.
