An Accurate Map of North America Northern Section Thomas Jefferys 1776 Original    An Accurate Map of North America Northern Section Thomas Jefferys 1776 Original
An Accurate Map of North America. Describing and distinguishing the British and Spanish Dominions on the Great Continent; According to Definitive Treaty Concluded at Paris 10th Feby. Also all the West India Islands Belonging to, and possessed by the Several European Princes and States. The whole laid down according to the latest and Most authentick Particular Map of Baffin and Hudson's Bay. Printed for Robert Sayer No. 53 Fleet Street as the Act Directs 2d. July 1775, by Thomas Jefferys, 1776. Originally published in, The American Atlas: Or, A Geographical Description of the Whole Continent of America... Engraved on Forty-Eight Copper Plates, By the Late Mr. Thomas Jefferys, Geographer to the King, and Others. Publication Note from the David Rumsey Historical Map Collection. One of the most important atlases of the American Revolutionary War period. There are 22 maps on 29 sheets.

The majority of the important large scale maps of the colonies are here, appearing together for the first time after having been issued as separates by Jefferys in the 1750's and 60's. This copy is the 1st 1776 edition, with the Quebec map, without the Lake Champlain map, as issued. This copy is the same as NMM 361, except the title page says 48 copper plates rather then the 49 on NMM 361, and on the NY/NJ map it is Major Holland rather than Capt.

Holland our NY/NJ map says Major-the 1775 says Capt-our index omits Holland-the reproduction atlas map copy says Major, and Carver is eliminated why? ; probably indicates that this was slightly before the NMM 361, as the 1775 title page is identical to this one (although we have not seen it yet-relying on P1165), except for the date. Summary of editions: 1775 (actually issued in 1776, has Evans Middle Colonies map, P1165); 1776 1st issue our copy with 48 on TP, Quebec replaces Evans, N.

Is dated 1776, rather than 1775 and adds Pownall corrections and improvements; 1776 2nd issue (NMM 361, 49 on TP); 1777 1776 on TP, N. Amer changes from Bowen/Gibson to Pownall version with 1777 on map, adds L. Champlain, P1166 -our reproduction copy; 1778 (P3659a, NMM 362, no changes from 1777); 1782 P1169, no changes except Phillips says this copy has 1783 ed of N. Our TP is a transition from 1775 to NMM361; NMM361 anticipates the Lake Champlain map in saying 49 plates.

Covers are half leather brown cloth covered boards with Jeffery's American Atlas. London MDCCLXXVI stamped in gilt on the spine. I'll entertain any and all questions. Thank you for looking and, as always, KEEP READING.
