The United States Antique Map 1794 London Laurie & Whittle
Item Details
Description
The United States of America with the British Possessions in Canada, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland divided with the French, also the Spanish Territories of Louisiana and Florida according to the Preliminary Articles of Peace Signed at Versailles the 20th of January 1783.
Published by Laurie & Whittle, Printed May 12th, 1794, London
Dimensions: Sight 19 ¾ x 18, Frame 23 x 21 inches.
In the preliminary Articles of Peace signed in 1783, Spain negotiated rights to Florida, with Spain keeping West Florida and gaining back East Florida in exchange for the Bahamas. This map accurately depicts both East and West Florida in yellow, to represent Spanish holdings.
Article III of the Treaty, concerning fishing rights, is reprinted next to the cartouche, which includes one of the earliest representations of an American Flag to appear on a printed map.
There is also excellent detail on the locations of forts and mines, the Indian tribal territories and villages in the Ohio and Mississippi River Valleys, including the Choctaws and the Cherokees.
Robert Laurie (ca. 1755-1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818) were London based map and atlas publishers, considered to be the successors of their employer Robert Sayer. Laurie and Whittle published numerous maps and atlases, often bringing in other important cartographers of the day, to update existing Sayer plates. The company still exist as an English publisher of nautical maps Imray, Laurie, Norie and Wilson Ltd, and considered the oldest map publisher in Europe.
