  3. De Bry’s Map of Colonial Virginia; The First Map to Focus on Virginia Including Chesapeake Bay

    John White. Americæ pars, nunc Virginia dicta : primum ab Anglis inuenta, sumtibus Dn. Walteri Raleigh, Equestris ordinis Viri, Anno Dni. MDLXXXV. [Frankfurt: 1590]

    The map, engraved by Theodore De Bry, is based on a manuscript description of Virginia by John White. It has been described as one of the most significant cartographic milestones in colonial North American history.

    Published in De Bry’s Anglorum in Virginiam aduentus, it is the most accurate map drawn in the sixteenth century of any part of North America. It is also the first map to focus on Virginia and to record the first English attempts at colonization in the New World.
