Although this map bears the date 1755, it apparently was not published until 1769. It is a very detailed map of the British and French possessions and the disputed region between them, which is graphically depicted by the original color. The frontier forts of both nations are located, as are colonial settlements and Indian villages. A small compass rose is the only ornament.

References: McCorkle #769.1.

Condition: B

Slight damp stain at paper edges and just intruding into map at top corners.

Estimate: $800 - $900

Sold for: $600
