A nice example of the 1777 Revolutionary War edition of the Scull & Heap map of Philadelphia, published by the Gentleman's Magazine. The Scull & Heap map went through a number editions, the first in 1752. The first edition of this map appeared in the August issue of Gentleman's Magazine in 1753.
The grid plan for the city lies near the middle of the map, with the Centre Square and the Court House being the only features shown. Much information is depicted about the surrounding regions, where roads, mills, and houses of prominent people are named and shown. These fascinating details give us a treasure trove of information about the development of the Philadelphia area in its early, important days. What is especially interesting is a considerably developed Germantown, with houses lining both sides of Germantown Pike.
With a compass rose, and a small decorative title cartouche. A second edition with the table with details replaced by roads in New Jersey, etc.
