Virginia and Maryland As it is Planted and Inhabited this present Year 1670
Virginia and Maryland As it is Planted and Inhabited this present Year 1670 is a detailed four-sheet map of the Chesapeake Bay region. The cartographer Augustine Herrman, a native of Prague, took more than a decade to survey and draft the map, which was published in London in 1673. Lord Baltimore, who commissioned the map, granted Herrman a large estate called Bohemia Manor in present-day Cecil County, Maryland, for his efforts. The Herrman map and the John Smith map of 1612 remained the most important renderings of the area until the Fry-Jefferson map was published in 1753.
