United States Northeast/New England General
Antique uncolored map of New England and New York in 1697, published by Hinton, Simpkins, and Marshall in 1830. This map was based upon a similar map of this area, which was included in Cotton Mather's 1702 publication "Magnalia Christi Americana," which detailed the religious changes and developments in New England from 1620-1698. Map includes coastal cities, major cities, rivers, etc. Charmingly inaccurate in its scale and in other details, including Rhode Island drawn as an actual Island, Martha's Vineyard labeled as "Martin's Vineyard," all rivers are shown as traveling north to south in incredibly straight paths, etc. Includes an "Indicot Tree" at the top of the map, presumably representing the Endicott (or Endecott) Pear Tree in Danvers, Massachusetts, which is believed to be the oldest living cultivated fruit tree in North America. Visible plate mark. Very good overall antique condition with some toning and mild foxing, mainly at the outer edges. Measures approximately 7.5" x 9.75" to the neatline. ***SOLD***
