The Western Parts of Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland and North Carolina.

David Rumsey Map Collection,

DESCRIZIONE

"This map was published separately and at the same time as Hutchins' ""Topographical Description..."" and should accompany the book. Streeter calls it ""by far the best map of the west printed to that time."" It was the first large scale map of the area west of the Allegheny Mountains based on personal observations, although Hutchins gives credit to Lewis Evans' ""Map of the Middle Colonies"" as the best prior source of information about the area. The map contains extensive printed notes which describe important aspects of the country depicted. This map ranks with the most important American maps issued in the 18th century and is now rare. Hutchins later became the first Geographer of the United States. With outline color. Map is dissected into 32 sections and mounted on linen. Folds into new green cloth folding boards and quarter leather green cloth slip case 24x16 with ""Hutchin's New Map Of Western Parts Of Virginia, Etc. 1778"" on the spine in gold.
