The first edition of this scarce and under appreciated map of the colonies. The map is remarkable for its detail and the for its unusual placenames. Pennsylvania, Virginia, the Carolinas & Georgia show territorial claims extending to the Mississippi. Florida also extends to the Mississippi. The rivers & Indian Tribes of the Mississippi Basin are shown in detail. Many early forts are shown. The region west of the Mississippi is Mississippi or Louisiana. A number of other early notes & places shown, including Walker's Establishment in 1750 (Kentucky). Massachusetts Bay is still a province. Neither Maine nor Vermont has been created. A flawless examp;e with exceptionally dark impression of this highly collectable map.
