A New and Correct Map of North America with the West  India Islands, Divided According to the Last Treaty of Peace ... 20th of Jan.  1783 ... Particularly Distinguished the Thirteen Provinces wich Compose the  United States of North America

Fine example of Lotter's four-sheet map of the newly formed United States, based upon a map originally published by Bowen & Gibson and later by Jefferys, and Sayer & Bennett.

The map is a completely different engraving and includes a striking cartouche showing trade in America. The geography and insets are largely unchanged from the contemporary Sayer & Bennett map.

One of the map's two insets is a map of the Gulf of California (here called "Sea of California"), after Kino, titled: "The Passage by Land to California Discover'd by Father Eusebius Francis Kino a Jesuit: between the Years 1698 and 1701. before which, and for a Considerable Time Since California has always been described in all Charts & Maps as an Island."

This copy was sold with the provenance of Frederick Augustus, Duke of York. The map lacks his bookplate and typical numbering scheme, but the condition and subject matter, and the fact that it came with a map with the Duke of York bookplate, lend credence to the story.

Tobias Conrad Lotter (1717-1777) is one of the best-known German mapmakers of the eighteenth century. He engraved many of the maps published by Matthaus Seutter, to whose daughter Lotter was married. He took over Seutter’s business in 1756. Lotter’s son, M. A. Lotter, succeeded his father in the business.
