Der Teufels Belt gemeiniglich genannt der Lange Insels Sund, 1776

 Item
Identifier: 2020-IL-001-128
Description

This rare map depicts Long Island, New York City, and the Connecticut coastline north to Stonington Bay. Muller took the geography on this map directly from Thomas Jeffery's 1755 map titled "A Map of the Most Inhabited Part of New England ..." The copy displayed here was most likely issued separately from its original pamphlet, and may have been bound unfolded into a folio composite atlas produced during the American Revolutionary War era.

Dates: 1776
