dc.descriptionDescription from Mapping Maryland: "Herman's map served as the prototype for subsequent Maryland maps well into the eighteenth century. Its large size may have contributed to its present -day scarcity; only six original copies have been located worldwide."en_US
dc.descriptionDescription from "Maryland from the Willard Hackerman Map Collection" George Peabody Library Exhibit Oct. 9, 2018 - March 16, 2019: "Augustine Herrman, a native of Bohemia, came to map Maryland in 1661 at the request of Cecil Calvert, Lord Baltimore. Pleased with the result, he award Herrman a large tract of land know as Bohemia Manor on the Elk River in Cecil County. Herrman performed extensive surveys and his map shows that settlements were concentrated along rivers and creeks of the tidewaters. He depicted Maryland's southern border with Virginia by a broken line and a row of trees running across the Eastern Shore. This map served as the model for all later maps until the Fry & Jefferson map of 1753 was produced. Mr. Hackerma, as with all other modern day collectors, could not obtain an original copy of this map - there are only six known copies extant worldwide."
