Description

Nice old color example of Hinton's map of the Theater of War in America, during the French & Indian War.

The map appeared in the Universal Magazine of February, 1761 and shows the region from Maine to Pennsylvania west to include the Great Lakes and north to 52 degrees. The map includes nice detail of the early settlements and Indian Tribes, with the occasional annotation describing the Indians.

Pennsylvania's boundary is carried to 43 degrees, Philadelphia and "Pitsburg" are named, along with Harris T., Reading, Easton, Franks T., and the major rivers.

French & Indian War maps from the Universal Magazine are scare on the market, especially in such fine vivid original color.
