A Map of the Most Inhabited Part of Virginia and Maryland with part of Pensilvania, New Jersey, and North Carolina
This is a reproduction of a map extracted from Thomas Jeffery's 1776 work The American Atlas. The map was originally produced in 1751; the 1775 edition is a reprint. Map includes a table of distances between various cities, included in a 1755 printing by J. Dalrymple. Map title is incorporated into an engraving depicting several men at a ship-yard.
Aitken's 1776 map, printed in Philadelphia, is largely based on the Fry and Jefferson map of the same area, delineated by Du Simitière. Full title reads: "Map of the Maritime Parts of Virginia, Exhibiting the Seat of War and of Ld. Dunmore's depredation in that Colony." Reproduction is likely a photocopy.
