Label:This map is among the earliest derivatives of Augustine Herrman's very rare map of "Virginia and Maryland" of 1673." It retains the placenames and orientation of Herrman's map, with north oriented to the right of the map rather than the top.

This copy is published in William C. Wooldridge, "Mapping Virginia: From the Age of Exploration to the Civil War" (Charlottesville: University of Virginia Press, 2012), Map 64.
