DESCRIPTION : THIS MAP EXTENDS FROM THE 40TH PARALLEL TO THE 30TH. ITS REPRESENTATION OF THE CHESAPEAKE BAY IS RELATIVELY SMALL, BUT SHOWS A CONSIDERABLY DIFFERENT AND LESS ACCURATE DEPICTION OF THE BAY AREA THAN THE MAP ENTITLED "A NEW MAP OF VIRGINIA AND MARYLAND", 10 PAGES EARLIER IN MORDEN'S GEOGRAPHY RECTIFIED, LONDON, 1680. THIS MAP APPEARED ON PAGE 379. THIS REPRESENTATION OF THE BAY IS BASED MORE ON THE SMITH MAP (BECAUSE OF THE WIDE DELMARVA PENINSULA) THAN ON THE AUGUSTINE HERRMAN MAP OF 1673 WHICH THE OTHER MAP IN THE ATLAS WAS TAKEN FROM (SEE MAPS 112S5 AND 173H5). COPIES ARE IN THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS, THE JOHN CARTER BROWN LIBRARY AND IN YALE.

DATA IS FROM OBSERVATION OF THE COPY IN THE HUNTINGFIELD COLLECTION.
