A Map of the Country between Crown Point and Fort Edward.
[Gentleman's Magazine. 1759.]
Engraving. Sheet size: 210 x 130mm (8¼ x 5¼"). Small margins on 3 sides.
A map of the area between the southern part of Lake Champlain and Fort Edward, one of the earliest maps of North America to appear in the Gentleman's Magazine.

Several forts are shown, including Fort Ticonderoga, along with a very good path east & west next to the drown'd lands. One of the trails is labeled Dieskau's Path referring to the route taken by French and Indian forces under the command of German Baron Ludwig August Dieskau and British and Colonial troops under Sir William Johnson that resulted in a series of skirmishes and engagements known collectively as The Battle of Lake George. This battle was the first significant win against the French forces by British Provincials.

[Two exact cuttings from the 'Chart of the Atlantic Ocean, with the British, French & Spanish Settlements in North America, and the West Indies']
[Engraved by Thomas Jefferys after 'John Green', aka Braddock Mead.]
[London c.1755-1770.]
Two sections of an engraved map, both with original hand colour. Image area c. 270 x 330mm (10½ x 13"). Trimmed.
Two cuttings exactly the same size showing the same section of Mead's 'Chart of the Atlantic Ocean', coloured differently to show English acquisitions. They show the top left quarter of the map, with North America from Labrador south to Florida and New Mexico, without the European and African coasts of the Atlantic. Whereas the original map, published 1753, was coloured to show the original colony charter limits for Virginia and Carolina (extending west across the Mississippi), both examples have been updated to 1755, showing the aftermath of Father Le Loutre’s War (1749-55), caused by the foundation of Halifax by the British (a line has been added marked 'Limits of Canada from Bellins Carte 1755). The earlier representation is coloured to show the situation at the begining of the Seven Years' War (French-Indian War, 1754-63), with the French controlling Canada; the later is apparently coloured to show the situation c.1770, when the the 'Royal Proclamation of 1763', in which George III promised the Six Nation tribes that Europeans would not settle their lands west of the Appalachian Mountains, was renegotiated. Between 1768 and 1770, by the treaties of Hard Labour, Fort Stanwix and Lochaber, the English bought what is now Kentucky and West Virginia from the Cherokee, an area marked in green on the map. The original 'Chart of the Atlantic Ocean' is one of a six-sheet map of North and South America, an exceeding rare set. Obviously used by politican/military for comparison, maybe for a treaty?

A map of the proposed boundary between the new territories of Kansas and Nebraska, prepared for the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, and published in the Congressonal Record. 'The Kansas-Nebraska Act' was one of the milestones en route to the American Civil War: when the territories were opened up for settlement it was decided to give them a free vote about whether to allow slavery or not. Agitators for both sides poured in, including the infamous John Brown and his sons, who murdered five pro-slavery farmers with a broadsword. The dispute also split the traditional political parties, the Democrats & Whigs, with the dissenters turning to the naisant Republicans. The major political camps were now divided geographically, Republicans for the North and Democrats for the south.

One of the 24 sections of a map of the United Sates of Nother America. A British separately issued map of the United States up to the Rockies by Theodor Ettling. Ettling was a Dutch draughtsman, engraver and lithographer who worked first in Amsterdam, later moving to London where he produced maps for some of the British papers of the mid-nineteenth century. This map was published by the Weekly Dispatch, which issued an atlas in 1858 with maps by Ettling. Ettling seems to have made quite a study of North America, issuing a number of fine examples such as this large folding map. Detail is copious and precisely delineated in a typically neat British style. Roads, towns, rivers, lakes, and topographically are all accurately and clearly rendered. The map shows the United States as it was situated at the beginning of the Civil War, includes the Bahamas and part of Cuba.
