Description
A collection of primarily manuscript maps and other materials that provided the foundation for the Joshua Fry and Peter Jefferson map. The published map included Fry and Jefferson's completed border survey for the western bounds of the Northern Neck and the dividing line between Virginia and North Carolina. For the first time the entire Virginia river system was properly delineated, and the northeast-southwest orientation of the Appalachian Mountains was displayed.
