The Gentleman's Magazine published several versions of Scull and Heap's important map of 1750. This Pre-Revolutionary War issue is the less common edition that contains the table of distances below the cartouche, as opposed to the map published in 1777 (GENT-256). The map holds special value as a historical document because it shows the names of owners of estates and farms outside the city. Includes a Xerox copy of the description of Philadelphia from the 1753 Gentleman's Magazine.

Several large tears at upper right with one tear clear across map, all with old paper repairs on verso. Close binding trim at lower right, as issued. A map worthy of professional conservation and repair.
