Great map of North America, result of the French & Indian War...
Item # 580647
December 2, 1762
SUPPLEMENT TO THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE For The Year 1762 This "Supplement" issue was printed at the end of the year, which has as its lead article a nice report titled: "General Observations on the Preliminaries of Peace, so far as they Relate to the Continent of North America...". which references the terrific map which comes with this issue. This article takes about 1 1/2 pages (see for portions).
The map has always been among my favorites of the many which appeared in Gentleman's Magazine from the 18th century. It is titled: "An Accurate Map of the British Empire in Nth. America as Settled by the Preliminaries in 1762." referring to the Treaty of Fontainebleau which would lead to the Treaty of Paris in 1763 which would end the French & Indian War. There is an inset to the map which is labeled: "A Chart of the Entrance of the Mississippi." showing the New Orleans vicinity. The map measures 8 3/4 by 10 1/2 inches including the margins. A few minor archival mends to the reverse.
There are various other articles in this issue as well as seen in the Table of Contents on the front page (see) but they pale in comparison to the map and related article on the End of the French & Indian War.
The issue is complete in 32 pages & measures 5 by 8 inches and is in very nice, clean condition.
