MONTANUS, Arnoldus. [17th century map of Virginia]
Nova Virginiæ Tabula. London: John Ogilby, 1671. Coloured. 295 x 355mm.
The environs of Chesapeake Bay published in Ogilby's 'America', an English edition of Montanus' 'De Nieuwe En Onbekende Weereld'. Derived from the John Smith map of 1612 it ignores the development of Maryland, and for some reason has a llama and a unicorn in the title cartouche. The same plate was used for the Dutch edition of the same year, published by Meurs.
