Description:

Scarce Revolutionary War map of the region from the northern part of the Chesapeake and the mouth of the Delaware to Long Island, including all of New Jersey and most of Long Island and Delaware, along with parts of Maryland and Pennsylvania.

This is a reduced version of Bernard Romans Chorographical Map, of the Country, round Philadelphia, published in New Haven of 1798, of which there are two known examples

The map is perhaps most noteworthy for the detailed depiction of the colonial roads in the Mid-Atlantic region, including the distances between the towns named on the map, one of the earliest reasonably obtainable maps to depict road distances in the American colonies.  Shows towns, counties, roads, rivers, lake, islands, mountains &c.  A nice Revolutionary War period map of the region.
