Description

In the mid-18th century, the Homann Heirs issued this group of four maps on a single sheet, which are based upon earlier maps by Herman Moll, published in London.

Each of the maps was separately issued in Moll's Atlas Minor. The map titles are New Engelland, New York, New Yersey, und Pensilvania; Carolina neksteinem Theil von Florida; Virginia und Maryland; and New Founland od Terra Nova S. Laurentii Bay…New Schotland.

The text at the bottom includes notes on the maps and the Iroquois Indians. The maps include the most current information from the British Colonies, including dozens of place names, Indian settlements, roads, and postal information. The maps also provide details on indigenous battles with the Indians by Col. Barnwell and Col Craven in the Carolina map, and details on Indian and English plantations on the Maryland and Virginia map.
