This is the December 1776 issue of this map that adds additional battle information. The earlier edition (with a different title) was published in the October 1776 issue (see lot #200). Troop and battle deployments are clearly shown, including the recent actions around White Plains. Also shows additional towns and roads on Staten Island and in East Jersey. A fascinating Revolutionary War map designed to illustrate to the British people the progress of the war against the rebels.
