A map of New-England
- A map of New-England : being the first that ever was here cut, and done by the best pattern that could be had, which being in some places defective, it made the other less exact : yet doth it sufficiently shew the scituation of the country, and conveniently well the distance of places ; the figures that are joyned with the names of places are to distinguish such as have been assaulted by the Indian from others
First map printed in America by Boston printer John Foster. The map was used to illustrate William Hubbard's book "The present state of New England : being a narrative of the troubles with the Indians, 1677." Hubbard wrote an account about King Philip's War (1675-76). Significant engagements of this conflict are identified by number.
