Description:

Reduced version of Hondius' 1606 map of the region from the Atlas sive Cosmographicae, retaining all of the Indian village names.

The map is based upon the work of John White and Jacques LeMoyne, as interpeted by De Bry's maps of the explorations. One of the last maps to cartographically predate Smith's contribution and the settlement of Jamestown. Le Moyne's lake in Florida has been moved to central Florida, to accommodate the St. May (St. Johns) River, which flows easterly. The influence of Wytfliet and Ribaut are evident.

This example includes English text on both sides.
