Scarce map of North Carolina published during the American Revolution, apparently based on Henry Mouzon's 1778 foundation map of the region. It is filled with nice data including rivers, early settlements and a number of court houses. Counties are named but their boundaries are not delineated. The Old Boundary Line of South Carolina is noted. Title in an attractive landscape style cartouche.
