New Jersey Map

This is an original map of the New Jersey colony created in 1769. The map shows incredible details of the region, including towns, waterways, terrain, and boundaries. The map is titled, "The Province of New Jersey, divided into East and West, commonly called the Jerseys. Engraved & published by Wm. Faden." Shows county boundaries and "Division line run in 1743 between East New Jersey and West New Jersey." Includes a table of "Astronomical observations."  The map was drawn from a survey made in 1769.

Map includes the caption, "In this second edition great use has been made of several military surveys generously communicated by officers of the British troops and of the regiments of Hesse and Anspach."
