dc.descriptionDescription from Mapping Maryland: "This map contains the first detailed delineation of the area to be know as "Maryland." Serving as a "Mother map," Smith's work spawned nine major derivations and provided inspiration for subsequent regional map until superseded in 1673. The map was noted for its accuracy, and archaeologists referred to it to located Maryland's Native American settlements."en_US
dc.descriptionDescription from "Maryland from the Willard Hackerman Map Collection", George Peabody Library Exhibit Oct. 9, 2018 - March 16, 2019: "This map is a tour de force, not only in terms of its remarkable accuracy after only three months of exploration by Captain John Smith, but also of the engraver's art. Smith provided a legend at upper right of areas explored first-hand or only heard about through reports by native populations. Staggered through the center of the map are the large black letters "POWHATAN," and that emperor is seen in his court to the left. Scholars believe that Smith's principal aim may have been to identify these well-organized indigenous kingdoms with the long-term objective of supplanting them by English colonization. Smith's map appeared in twelve states over the next two decades."
