Title

Virginia Item et Floridae

Description

This map of Virginia and the Carolinas by the Dutch cartographer Jodocus Hondius (1583–1612) combines the efforts of two previous mapmakers, John White and Jacques le Moyne (ca. 1533–1588), both of whom, unlike Hondius, had visited the area.

The map was originally published in 1609, but this version comes from a 1619 French edition of Gerardus Mercator's Atlas Sive Cosmographicae. The cartouche includes a view of a Florida Indian village on the left, and a Virginia Indian village on the right.
