The December 1776 issue of this map adds additional battle information; the earlier edition (with a different title) was published in the October 1776 issue (Jolly GENT-248). Troop and battle deployments are clearly shown, including the recent actions around White Plains. It also shows additional towns and roads on Staten Island and in East Jersey. A fascinating Revolutionary War map designed to inform the British people on the progress of the war against those rascally rebels.

References: Jolly GENT- 250.

Condition: B+

A near fine and clean example that only suffers from some text and engraved line offsetting.

Estimate: $200 - $250
