December 1608

[1608.] 17. Map of Virginia, discovered and described by Capt. John Smith, graven by Wil. Hole. In the left top corner is an engraving with this inscription "Powhatan held this state and fashion when Capt. Smith was delivered to him prisoner." In the opposite corner, is a figure of one of the Sasquesahanouys [Susquehannah], "a giant like people and thus attired." [A beautifully preserved copy of the original map, similar to that inserted in Smith's Virg. and in Purchas.]
