Partie septentrionale des possessions angloise en Amérique

This pair of French maps illustrates the seat of war in America during the Revolution. Published at a time when French cartographers relied upon English maps for new information, Ambrose Perrier and Francois Verrier engraved these maps using John Mitchell's A Map of the British and French Dominions. Perrier and Verrier ordered copies of of English publisher Williams Faden's recent stock to produce their own North American maps for a French audience. Each sheet displayed here has its own title and decorative cartouche, however, when viewed together the maps tell a more complete story of the war
