Rare separately issued map, unfortunately only the upper part of the map. It is a variant of this important colonial map. The upper sheet showing the upper course of the St. Lawrence River. With 3 large insets: 1) A Chart of the Mouth of Hudson's River from Sandy Hook to New York. This is in effect a chart of New York Harbor, with depth soundings, shoals, and other marine information laid down. 2) A Plan of Amboy. The city of Perth Amboy, the old capital of New Jersey, and the most important port in that province. 3) A Plan of the City of New York. Twenty five important sites are identified by key.

The map was prepared by Major Samuel Holland, Surveyor General for the Northern District of North America and issued as early as 1768. Holland conceived of a general survey of North America east of the Mississippi to be based upon geodetic principles, on a scale of one inch to one mile. Work was interrupted in 1775 by the outbreak of the American Revolution. There are six known states of the map, including five published in London states. State three adds the inset plans. State four had numerous alterations, particularly in upstate New York, where numerous new land grants were added. These changes were based on original materials provided by Thomas Pownall, who had previously served as governor of both New York and Massachusetts, and was extremely interested in colonial topography.
This very rare German edition is a faithful re-engraving of the fifth and most complete of the London states. The use of English is preserved for the title, all place names, notations, and legends.
