Engraver Thomas Kitchin British
Printer Robert Baldwin, London British

Not on view

This is one of a series of maps that England's first literary periodical, the London Magazine, published during the French and Indian War (1754-63) as France and Britain fought for control of the Eastern Great Lakes and Canada, prompting an appetite for accurate details of Britain's American colonies. Relying on John Mitchell's important 1755 map of the British Colonies in North America, this image centers on Maryland while also showing adjacent areas of Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and coastal Virginia.
