A New Description of Carolina by Order of the Lords Proprietors
When Ogilby first published his “America” volume in 1671, he did not have a map of Carolina. Early issues of “America” contain the Montanus map of the region. Ogilby spoke to Peter Colleton, one of the Lords Proprietors, who wrote the following to John Locke. “Mr. Ogilby who is printing a relation of the West Indies hath been often with mee to gett a map of Carolina wherefore I humbly desire you to gett of my lord [Ashley] those mapps of Cape feare & Albemarle that he hath & I will draw them into one…”
Since the Ogilby-Moxon map contains interior detail derived from John Lederer’s 1672 published map, it is likely that the Ogilby-Moxon map was published in 1673, or perhaps late 1672. The map is found in late issues of Ogilby’s “America”, and is also found in some issues of Samuel Wilson’s 1682 promotional tract, “An Account of the Province of Carolina”. The most famous derivative of this map is the so-called Speed map of Carolina published in 1676.
