America Septentrionalis a Domino d'Anville in Galliis edita nunc in Anglia Coloniis in Interiorem Virginiam deductis nec non Fluvii Ohio cursu aucta notisque georgraphicis et historicis illustrata et ad bellum praesentis temporis accomodata. Imprint:  Sumptibus Homanniorum Heredum, Nuremburg, 1777. 18" h X 20" w, colored. This map appears in various atlases published by Homann Heirs. Based on the Jefferys map of 1755, d'Anville...M. of French the from America North (Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville, 1697-1782). The map toponyms are in English, the title in Latin, and extensive notes in German relate to English and French territorial claims. This map is an updated version of the Homann Heirs' map published in 1756. The political boundaries now reflect the outcome of the French and Indian War (1754-1763) and the evolution of the American colonies. The map is thoroughly annotated in German. Interesting map of the Colonies at the outset of the French & Indian War. Some of the interesting features include a truncated Pennsylvania and oversized Virginia, as well as the massive stretch of land in North Carolina designated Earl Granville's property, which extends to the Mississippi. An early appearance of Georgia. Nice detail in the Great Lakes region and Canada. Published right in the middle of the American Revolution [1777]. Light age tone, tips of bottom corners missing basically away from border engraving but unnoticeable as it is matted for display.
