    This uncommon French and Indian War map would have provided an invaluable glimpse into the war for readers across the Atlantic. The map covers the region from Boston north to Quebec, and goes as far west as Lake Ontario. There is excellent detail of the area, with many rivers, lakes, towns, and cities identified. Various forts and camps are located, and a note in New Hampshire indicates a Barrier against the Indians. Indian territories are labeled, with the Iroquois apparent as the dominant tribe in the vicinity. A decorative title cartouche adorns the bottom right corner. Engraved by R.W. Seale.

Condition Description: Issued folding on watermarked paper with a 2" binding tear at right and a 0.5" tear at bottom that have been repaired on verso with archival material. The binding trim at lower right has been replaced with old paper.

Ref: Jolly #UNIV-58; Sellers & van Ee #79.

Estimate:
$400.00 - $500.00
