New Additions: French and Indian War map

NEW ADDITIONS bannerNEW ADDITIONSNew to the Old Print Gallery is an unusual folio-sized map of English colonies, shown approximately at the close of the French and Indian War. No cartographer or publisher’s name is given. The map was a folded insert in “History of War in America”, printed in 1779 in Dublin. The same map appeared the following year in “An Impartial History of the War in America”. This map was engraved on the basis of John Mitchell’s map of 1755. Highly detailed, it identifies Indian tribes and forts built by the French. It was aimed to acquaint the general reader with the activity of the North American theater of the Seven Years War.
