Notes
  • Untitled map of the Virginia-North Carolina border, showing the creeks and rivers that cross and recross the boundary. Title is taken from the text of the map.
  • Map is divided into 2 sections; the top part extends from the Dan River in the west to Currituck Inlet on the Atlantic, with dotted line "A" indicating the boundary between "Virginiae pars" and "Carolinae pars." The date March 6 1727-8 is printed at the eastern edge of the map and April 2, 1728 printed just east of the Meherrin River.
  • The lower part of the map, with dotted line "B" indicating the boundary, is an enlargement of the section from Sommerton Creek east to Dismal Swamp, Notts Island and on to the ocean. A linear scale is shown in this bottom portion, but corresponding unit of measurement is not given.
  • An Indian holding a flowered branch, possums, two birds, a "six foot long" snake, a flying fish, and a squirrel on a tree trunk are pictured in the bottom section of the map.
  • One of 50 copies printed from an original copperplate uncovered at Oxford amongst a collection of plates given to them in 1755 by Richard Rawlinson. The plate has Roman numeral II (two) in upper right corner. Cartographer's name and details of previous publication are unknown.
