Great map of Germany...

Item # 589832
THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, January, 1759

* Map of Germany 

Near the back is nearly a full page of reports concerning the French & Indian War, including a "Letter from Oneida Carrying Place" which begins: "The grand sachem of the Oneida Indians was with us at the taking of Frontignac; he was one of the most Christian Indians I ever saw, constantly at prayers...before he got half a mile from our encampment he was shot dead..." plus a "Letter from New Jersey" with some text re. the Indians, plus a letter from "Pittsburgh (formerly Fort du Quesne), Nov. 28" includes: "The day is arrived that has at last fixed us on the banks of the Ohio! the finest & most fertile country of America, lying in the happiest climate in the universe..." with more.

Also a letter from "New York, Nov. 20" Plus another report being a letter from General Forbes dated from Fort DuQuesne. Perhaps the best portion of the issue is the large foldout map titled: "A Complete Map of Germany Comprehending in one View the Different Seats of the Present War, 1759" with some incredible detail.

The map shows from the "German Ocean" with a portion of England, to a portion of Denmark, the Baltic Sea, Hungary, Croatia, Bosnia, the Gulf of Venice, Geneva, and so much more in between. Very detailed with hundreds of towns and rivers noted.

The map measures about 7.5 x 10.5 inches from edge to edge. Both the issue & the map (though trimmed closed) are in nice condition. The issue includes 48 pgs. with full title/index page & measures about 5 by 8.5 inches.
