DESCRIPTION

This is the earliest detailed plan of the city of Boston published in France. Beautifully engraved and colored in the best style of French manuscript and printed maps, it shows streets, houses, public buildings, wharves, Beacon Hill, the Common, and other points of interest. Oxidation has turned the once green ink to a rust color in this example. This plan of Boston Harbor was probably copied from an English survey for use during the French and Indian War.
