This scarce, small map presents an early view of the infant United States during the American Revolution. It is a copy of Johann Schreiber's map of 1756 that focused on the disputed region during the French and Indian War. Probst's map adds the names of the thirteen states and embellishes the map with a different title cartouche; but otherwise the map is essentially unchanged. Engraved by Johann Georg Probst.
