Label:Each of the maps featured on this sheet were separately published in Herman Moll's "Atlas Minor" which had previously been published in England. Taken together, they depict most of the east coast of North America spanning from Newfoundland to the top of Florida.The four maps are (from upper left to right): Newfoundland and Saint Laurence Bay; New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania; Virginia and Maryland; Carolina and Florida (the southeast). The heirs of John Baptist Houmann published this compilation of maps with descriptions of the areas and information about current events such as information about Native American settlements and battles with Europeans.

The map of Virginia and Maryland is published in William C. Wooldridge, "Mapping Virginia: From the Age of Exploration to the Civil War" (Charlottesville: University of Virginia Press, 2012), #87, pp. 90-91.
