Description

Mid-19th Century Copy of Lewis Evans' seminal map of the region.

This may be the first map of Pennsylvania published in America. Evans followed this map with his more famous one of 1755, but this is an iconic map of the middle Atlantic and much copied, with English, German, and other editions.

The county of Lancaster was created in 1729 and is shown along with the founding counties of Philadelphia, Bucks and Chester. York County, created in 1749, is not shown although the town appears. This map originated the phrase 'Endless Mountains', which is still used as an advertising slogan.

The coverage of Pennsylvania ends just beyond the Susquehanna.
