This is the reduced version of William Faden's large New York map of 1749, published by David Vaughan one hundred years after the original. The map covers the region bounded by the Delaware and Susquehanna Rivers in the west, the St. Laurence River to Lake Francis and the 45° parallel in the north and Connecticut River in the east. It is an absolutely fascinating map of the region that shows hundreds of land patents with the owner identified. Roads and trails, villages and towns, terrain, watershed, forts, lakes, and more are shown. A beautiful compass rose appears below Long Island. Engraved on stone by R.H. Pease.
