Rare Revolutionary War period map of Virginia & Maryland, published by Le Rouge.

Le Rouge's 2 sheet edition is based upon the Fry Jefferson map, but covers only Virginia, Maryland & Delaware, plus the southern portions of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. It omits most of the portions of North Carolina shown in the English edition.

The Le Rouge edition is a faithful reproduction of Fry Jefferson's map, with only minor cartographic and nomenclature differences. Joshua Fry and Peter Jefferson (father of the Thomas Jefferson) first issued the English edition in 1754 (known in 2 copies). The map was subsequently issued over the next 30 years in a number of editions, including those bound into Jefferys American Atlas and a single sheet edition issued by De Vaugondy. The map is considered a cartographic landmark and one of the most important maps of the region ever issued.

The map has been extensively discussed by Cumming (281), Freeman & Fite (61). Morrison (fig. 41), Shwartz & Ehrenberg (pl.92) and others.

Rarity

This edition is vastly scarcer than the 4 sheet Fry Jefferson, which was issued over a number of years and in a number of different editions.
