This Auction is for a

quality and colors that are vivid
Mortier's map is based upon Thornton, Morden & Lea's virtually unobtainable
map of the region, first published in 1685.
Cumming observed that the two maps are identical to the smallest geographical
detail and provide the most complete and up to date view of the Carolinas
available at the end of the 17th Century. The original counties are named, and
numerous estates and plantations are identified. The map includes an inset of
Charleston, founded in 1669. One of the earliest obtainable maps of the region
to reflect any significant settlement.
Extends from Albermarle County to south of the Savannah River. Curiously,
their is also large "Charles Ville ou Charles Town" shown next to Cape Fear, a
reference to a short lived settlement in this established a few years prior to
Charleston and abandoned a few years later." ----Barry Lawrence Ruderman
