As the first comprehensive, fully descriptive list of the printed maps of New England prior to 1800, this volume documents every effort to depict the area cartographically, including maps printed in the Netherlands, France, Germany, and Italy, as well as English and American maps. Designed to be a practical reference tool for historians, collectors, antiquarian map dealers and all lovers of early cartography, it offers descriptions of over 800 maps. With 455 black-and-white illustrations, quick visual identification of specific areas is possible.
