Copper-engraved map by Emanuel Bowen, 1747, with text (see below). Image about 160 x 215 mm. (trimmed to borderline). Old hand-colouring. This map was originally part of a multiple image, and at sometime has been restored to symmetry by supplying the missing lower left-hand corner, which has been ruled and coloured to match.
The text refers to a "small English town" - apparently the settlement that later became Jamestown - "the Inhabitants having their Plantations deeper in the Country which furnish our homeward bound East India Ships with Refreshing Herbs, Roots, fresh Provisions and exceeding fine Water in great plenty, which are of great use in recovering the Seamen from the Scurvy"
