Short video captures condition much better than words. Please watch prior to purchase to ensure a clear understanding of the map.

Boston with its Environs.

(North America, United States, Revolutionary War, New England, Massachusetts, Boston, Cambridge, Hog Island).

Issued 1788, London for Gordon. Engraved by T. Conder.

Fine and uncommon 18th century antique map.

Map displays signs of age, including: toning and scattered age spotting, plus a couple small well done old paper repairs on the reverse to close short splits in the wide blank margins (please see photos). Despite the condition issues as described and seen, map retains a pleasing if not noble appearance, unique to printed maps of this era.

Original fold lines as issued.

Sheet measures c. 10 1/2″ H x 14 1/2″ W.
