A map of New-England


A map of New-England

Item Information

Title:
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
Description:
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.
