MORTIER, Pierre (1661-1711).


Carte Particuliere de Virginie, Maryland, Pennsilvanie, La Nouvelle Jarsey...


Engraved map with original hand color in outline.


Amsterdam and Paris, c. 1700.


24 3/4” x 37 1/2” sheet, 29 1/2” x 42 1/2” framed.


Large scale, decorative map showing the area from Staten Island in New York southward to Carratuck Inlet in North Carolina with the Chesapeake Bay featured prominently. This chart is by A.H. Jaillot, and appeared in the atlas Suite du Neptune Francois...This atlas was published by Pierre Mortier for Jaillot. Cartographically, this map is a very close copy of John Thornton & William Fisher's chart of 1689 that appeared in The English Pilot, The Forth Book, which in turn was largely based on the hugely important and rare Augustine Herrman map.
