Revolution : Mapping the Road to American Independence, 1755-1783, Hardback Book

Revolution : Mapping the Road to American Independence, 1755-1783 Hardback

Description

Taking into account the key events of the French and Indian War, this book shows the American Revolution's progress in glorious contemporary maps and accompanying essays relating them to the events of the time.

The authors tell the stories of the maps and the cartographers whose talents have made these some of the most valuable artifacts in America's history. When war between Britain and her colonists erupted in 1775, maps provided the pictorial news about military matters.

The best examples of those maps, including some from the collection of King George III, the Duke of Northumberland and the Marquis de Lafayette, are beautifully reproduced here.

Others from institutional and private collections are published here for the first time.
