Title : North America Drawn & Engraved from the best Maps & Charts..
Map maker : KITCHEN, T..
Date : London, 1770.
Size : 14.0 x 15.0 inches. / 35.5 x 38.0 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :

Important early hand-coloured, copper engraved map of the British Colonies and the whole of North America, shortly after the conclusion of the French & Indian War and on the eve of Revolution.

Louisiana was a French possession and New Mexico and New Albion were Spanish Possessions. The Western Sea was noted opposite the Straits Juan De Fuca, although without a coast line in the north and east. The River of the West also remains, with an unbroken course from D'Aguilar's discoveries on the NW Coast to the Mississippi River. Teguayo & Quivira appear, although now shown as a single unit in the region which would roughly correlate with Utah. The Snowy Mountains in California are shown, along with several rivers, including the Carmel (Rio Colorado). Drake's landing near San Francisco is noted. Some curiously named Blue Mountains appear in the Northern Baja, not far from San Diego. Western Canada is shown as “These Parts are Unknown”.

A number of settlments are shown on the Rio Grande, including a note regarding the Apaches of Seven Rivers. Many Indian names in the interior, including Kansez, Black Padoucas, Padoucas, Panimatia, Eastern Sioux, Outaouas, Outagamis, and Moscoutops. Many other early interesting features. The British Colonial claims on the East Coast run to the Mississippi River. Very interesting is southern Florida which appears as an archipelago.

Thomas Kitchin (1718–1784) was an English engraver and cartographer. Kitchin was apprenticed to Emanuel Bowen in 1732. He later went on his own and became hydrographer to the king in 1773. He was also an author, who wrote about the history of the West Indies.



Condition : In poor condition with the multiple folds now flattened. Blank on verso. Sold as is.
