The middle part of an eighteenth-century map of the Province of New York, surveyed by Claude Sauthier from 1771 to 1775, while working for William Tryon, the Colonial Governor of New York. The map was first published in Thomas Jefferys’ American Atlas in 1776, and reissued by William Faden in 1779. The map was made of three sheets. This is the middle part, depicting territories east of Lake Ontario and the Finger Lakes, to the Connecticut River Valley in the west, with parts of present-day Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut, and centered on the Mohawk Valley, and the Hudson River Valley from Lake George to Poughkeepsie. This highly detailed, large-scale map is an indispensable tool for any student of the history of the region.
