London: From The British Magazine, February, 1760 issue. 1760. About 7 ½ x 8 ½.”. Original fold lines as issued. Very good. Item #3697
A great small map of a good portion of the now southeastern United States, reaching to the Gulf coast at the south and Texas to the west. The area to the east of the Mississippi is marked “Territory in Dispute.” The colonies of Virginia, North and South Carolina and Georgia all extend to the Mississippi.
English claims to the disputed area are bolstered by a notation along the border between the Carolinas noting: “A large country subject to the English since 1729.” Numerous Indian tribes are noted, as well as “Wandering Indians” at the western portion of the Gulf coast.
Maps from The British Magazine are cited by Jolly as “practically unobtainable.” A fascinating portrayal of the area that was the subject of the French and Indian War in a very uncommon source. Jolly, Maps of America in Periodicals before 1800: 157. [ICN 7568.].
