An Exact Map of New England, New York, Pensylvania [sic] & New Jersey from the latest Surveys.

London. Bound in The English Magazine; or Monthly Register... 1777. This is the first -- and apparently unrecorded -- appearance of John Lodge's map of the northeastern United States in the midst of the American Revolution. The map is documented as having appeared in William Russell's The History of America, London, 1778. However, we find no record of it appearing in The English Magazine at the end of 1777. Indeed, Jolly makes no mention of The English Magazine in either Maps of America in Periodicals before 1800 or Maps in British Periodicals. The map includes the colonial description of Long Island Sound as "The Devil's Belt." An interesting map in a previously unrecorded source. McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps, 1513-1800: 778.5. Phillips, A List of Maps of America: 859. Item #3406
