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 extend to the Mississippi tentatively. 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. Light toning and a bit of soft creasing at the fold, othewise an nice example of this increasingly difficult to acquire map. Normally a $1300-1500 map.
