French-born surveyor Claude Joseph Sauthier produced many manuscript maps of New York and Staten Island during the early years of the Revolution. He compiled this map between 1771 and 1774 under the direction of the Governor of New York. The map was eventually engraved and published in London by William Faden five years later in 1779. Sauthier's finely detailed maps includes natural features and topography, boundaries, roads and establishments such as houses, taverns and forts.
