An antique map of North America and the Caribbean, created by the acclaimed British map seller and engraver, Emanuel Bowen. Issued on the eve of the American Revolution in 1772, the map is exquisitely colored by hand and updated to reflect the Treaty of Paris, and the changes in European colonial claims after the French and Indian War.

We wanted a map covering the colonies, all of North America and the Caribbean as close to 1776 as possible. This fit the bill. Excellent detail and good color. Very pleased with the product, price, packaging and delivery. Tim provided timely answers to our pre-purchase questions.
Very satisfied. Highly recommend Battlemaps.us
