Notes

A chart of the east coast of America, with an inset map of Virginia. One of seven very rare charts of North America in the atlas, in particular this map, which depicts the region at one of the most important stages of English colonial history”, as just a year later the English would capture New Amsterdam from the Dutch and rename it New York, an act that would cement the English control over the area from Carolina to Massachusetts”.
