A rare Revolutionary War date map of New York City published in the November 1776 Universal Magazine. The map draws upon the Montresor and Ratzer plans, both reissued at this time, and offers some new information such as "Delancey's New Square" with an indication on its west side of "Buildings not finished." Of revolutionary interest are "The Road to King's Bridge where the Rebels mean to make a Stand" parallel to "The Road to Kepps Bay where the Kings Troops Landed." See Nebenzahl, A Bibliography of the Printed Battle Plans of the American Revolution, #114.
