[Virginia] NOVA VIRGINIAE TABULA.
Derived from the Hondius-Blaeu version of John Smith’s map. Oriented to the West. Tooley’s Derivative 8, State 1: Cartouche at upper left with no imprint. “Notarum Explicato” at upper right with engraved goat, llama, and Native American. Does have a cartouche and a 6.4 centimeter scale below image. Used in Ogilby’s “America…” [1671], Montanus’s “De Niewe en onbekende Weereld,” [Amst: J. Meurs, 1671], and in a High German edition of the same work [1673]. Jester watermarks have appeared on the paper used for the Dutch and High German editions, and a cockatrice watermark on Ogilby’s English edition. No watermarks are visible here, but the image matches Tooley, “The Mapping of America,” pp168-169, Pl 76. Blank verso. 11 ½ x 14 in. at outer edge of border. Modern hand-coloring.
Repair to an area corresponding to image’s lower right. Verso has repair within several inches of c-fold. Verso has a few tape bits near edges. Mat burn. Image very good.
