FRY, Josua & JEFFERSON, Peter. [A French edition of an important map of Virginia]
Carte de la Virginie et du Maryland Dressée sur la grande carte Angloise de M.rs Josué Fry et Pierre Jefferson. Paris, Delamarche, c.1785. Original outline colour. 495 x 660mm.
Robert de Vaugondy's reduction of the important survey. In 1750 the Lords Commissioners of Trade and Plantations ordered that each of the 13 Colonies should produce an accurate survey of their lands. As Fry & Jefferson were already surveying the border between Virginia and North Carolina they were chosen for this assignment. For the first time the interior regions beyond the tidewater were mapped, as was the complete Virginia river system.
