Copper engraving, hand colored in outline, published in Joan Blaeu's 'Atlas Novus' German text edition in Amsterdam around 1634-35. Engraved by D. Grijp. This map was engraved after the famous map of Captain Smith's map of Virginia. This example is the 2nd state with the altered imprint 'ex officina Guiljelmi Blaeuw'. Blaeu used this map for the first time in his Atlantic Appendix (1630) and thereafter in virtually all editions of the atlas (Tooley). The appealing and quite detailed map is showing the discoveries of this region 'Virginia, the Chesapeake Bay and Maryland' after John Smith's map 1612. Blaeu's version of this map was the first map showing the Chesapeake region, that was really widely spread out by the Blaeu firm. It was one of the most detailed maps of the Chesapeake region, until 1673 in London the large four-sheet map by Augustine Herman was prepared.
