Finely engraved colonial map that covers most of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware with a bit of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The interior is fully engraved with mountains and great detail along the rivers. An early network of trails and wagon roads stretches as far west as Frederic Town ou Winchester and north to Philadelphia. A delicate rococo-style title cartouche adorns the map.

A fine impression with original color. There are a couple of minor damp stains in blank margins, far from map image.
