Description: THORNTON, John.
A New Mapp of Carolina. London: W. & J. Mount and T. Page, 1748. 430 x 520mm. A very good example.
An important English sea chart of the coasts of Carolina from Cape Charles south to near Hilton Head, orientated with north to the right. An inset detail shows the approaches to Charleston. The chart was first published in the 1689 edition of 'The English Pilot. The Fourth Book Describing The West India Navigation... Also, a New Description of Newfoundland, New-England, New-York, East and West New Jersey, Dellevar-Bay, Virginia, Maryland, and Carolina'. This was the first sea atlas of America containing charts only from English sources. Despite the numerous errors it remained the most popular chart of the area for well over fifty years. See SHIRLEY: Maps in the Atlases of the British Library, M.M&P-5c for an edition of the following year.
