A Map of New England

Book - 1675?
Rate this:
Based on a 1665 survey by William Reed, this is the earliest map drawn, engraved and printed in North America. The survey was commissioned by the government of Massachusetts to justify the colony's northern and southern boundaries, which are indicated by two parallel lines on the map. The map was prepared as a woodcut illustration for William Hubbard's account of the terrible Indian massacres of 1675, known as King Phillip's War, which was published simultaneously in Boston and London. The latter edition included the same map (displayed here), except the White Hills were mislabeled as the Wine Hills.
