The first edition of this scarce and under appreciated map of the 13 United States, shortly after America received its independence from Great Britain.
The map is remarkable for its detail. Pennsylvania, Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia extend to the Mississippi tentatively. Florida also extends to the Mississippi. The rivers and 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 and places shown, including Walker's Establishment in 1750 (Kentucky). Massachusetts Bay is still listed as a province. Neither Maine nor Vermont has been created. An excellent early map of the 13 United States.
Trimmed to the neat lines and laid down on a sheet of old paper.
