Description

Nice example of the 1780 edition of this scarce separately issued broadside Revolutionary War Map of the British Colonies.

The map includes a remarkable amount of historical, topographical and military notes and details concerning the British Colonies and neighboring regions, along with a large inset map of the Pacific, showing the various French trading routes to the new world from Brest, Nantes, Rochefort, Lisbon and Cadiz.

Excellent Indian & Colonial detail, especially in the Ohio Valley and western Virginia, where a number of early English forts and settlements are noted. There are also some dates regarding conflicts going back to the French & Indian War in the Ohio Valley.
