Label:Robert Morden published this map to replace a 1680 version (see 2017-86) for a1688 edition of "Geography Rectified." Ashley Baynton-Williams concluded that they were really two different maps, the 1680 based on Herrman, and this, the second, based on 1685 Thornton-Morden-Lea. The title on the map now omits Maryland, though the running title in the letterpress above the map is" A Description of Virginia and Mary-land." This example is remarkably fresh, is on full leaf from the book, and is accompanied by pages 561 (the map page) through the 566 of the text.
