FADEN, WILLIAM The Province of New Jersey, Divided Into East and West, Commonly Called The Jerseys.
London: William Faden, 1 December 1778. Stated "Second Edition with considerable improvements." Engraved map on laid-paper with partial hand-coloring. With an atlas marker "15" on the verso. Image 31 1/2 x 22 1/4 inches (79 x 57 cm); framed. Folds, a few faint spots, some minor tissue repair to fold ends on verso, very attractive overall.
This war-date map is based on Bernard Ratzer's important survey of New Jersey in 1769 conducted to resolve the New York/New Jersey boundary dispute. This is the uncommon second edition of the map, issued almost a full year after the first, provides many more town names and other information not present in the first. The cartouche features racoons and a snake. This copy has an atlas marker on the verso and was likely included in a contemporary edition of Faden's American Atlas.
