  <mods:abstract>This map was the first to be printed in the British Colonies, and though crude in appearance was for its time the best available map of the region. Based on a 1665 survey by Bostonian William Reed, it was repurposed by Foster to illustrate William Hubbard’s Narrative of the Troubles with the Indians in New England. The Narrative described King Philip’s War of 1675-76, a horrific conflict between New England colonists and Algonquin Indians. By war’s end the native population had been decimated and dozens of colonial towns (shown numbered on this map) ravaged.</mods:abstract>
  <mods:note>The "White hills" version of the map.</mods:note>
  <mods:note>Probably engraved by: John Foster.</mods:note>
  <mods:note>State 2 with additional town symbol between Seaconk and Plimouth.</mods:note>
  <mods:note>In: Hubbard, William. A narrative of the troubles with the Indians. Boston. 1677.</mods:note>
