Partie septentrionale des possessions angloise en Amérique : pour servire d'intelligence à la guerre présente entre les Anglois et leurs colonies dressée sur les meilleurs carte du pays

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
