Condition Rating

A nice example of this early map of the British Colonies, issued just one year prior to the seminal map of John Mitchell. The map is based largely upon the work of D'Anville.
The map is quite remarkable for the time period, showing several early Western Roads and numerous English and French forts east of the Alleghany and Appalachian Mountains, in the regions that would become the focal point of the French & Indian War. Many Indian Tribes are located, along with over a dozen English and French Forts.
The Gisto Settlement of Christopher Gist is shown, as is Walker's Settlement of 1750 on the Cumberland River.

Published in the June of 1754 in London (dated in the top right) in ´The Gentleman´s Magazine…´. This was a British publication that helped to normalise the use of maps in support of articles and features. It was founded in 1731 by the prominent London publisher Edward Cave, a pioneer in periodical journalism. ¤
