Product Description

Revolutionary War New York New Jersey antique map original. Titled A Map of the Provinces of New-York and New-Jersey, with a Part of Pennsylvania and the Province of Quebec. From the Topographical Observations of C.J. Sauthier. This authentic vintage map of New York and New Jersey during the Revolutionary War is a two map set originally meant to be displayed together. Each map is approximately 26" x 20" and when combined would be a very large 40" x 26". Printed using engraved copper plates on sturdy paper with beautiful hand coloring in Augsburg Germany 1777 by Lotter. This map afforded British commanders during the revolution an excellent overview of the areas that would be crucial in the early years of the war, in particular the Hudson valley and lake Champlain areas. Notice that the County of Charlotte in New York would soon become the State of Vermont. Also, the State of New Jersey is well delineated here. Lotter issued in Germany a number of English maps relating to America and the Revolution, probably because of interest aroused by the large number of German troops involved in the conflict. First drawn by C.J. Sauthier. There is a light water stain in the upper parts of the map as shown. A true one of a kind piece of American Revolutionary War history.
