This map is derived from Capt. John Smith's landmark 1612 map of Virginia, based upon the Hondius-Blaeu versions. It depicts the entire Chesapeake Bay area, including its major tributaries. The Montanus map is identical to the Ogilby map of the same year. Both are renowned for the cartouche depicting a Brazilian Indian with a llama, goat and unicorn. Maps
