  • Title: 1839 Jansson Map of US Southeast from Virginia to Florida -- Virginiae Partis Australis, et Floridae Partis Orientalis, Interjacentiumque Regionum Nova Descriptio
  • Date: 1839 c. Amsterdam
  • Cartographer: J Jansson
  • Size: 15.1 X 19.5 in.
  • Additional Information: This is a magnificent map of the US Southeast, extending from the southern part of Chesapeake Bay to northern Florida. The map presents the English and French colonial interests in the region as depicted by their respective royal arms. At the southern end of the Appalachians is a note concerning gold and silver mines. The Chesapeake Bay correctly indicated as a large bay and the Carolinas and Georgian coasts depicted more accurately than earlier maps. On this map a number of settlements are named, including Jamestown (est. 1609) and Newport News (est. 1621). It includes mythical lakes in the interior and other conjectural cartography of the time. This Jansson map is virtually identical to Blaeu's map (A key difference being is by the erroneous longitudinal number 200 in the lower right corner on Blaeu's map vs. the correct number, 300, appearing on Jansson's map such as this.) There is a richly decorated large cartouche flanked by Native Americans. The Atlantic Ocean contains two compass roses, three sailing ships and two aquatic putti. French text on verso, published between 1652-58.
