I am quite pleased to offer you this reproduction of a 1764 map of Fort Erie, as it roughly would have appeared at the start of the American Revolution; a highly detailed and extremely unique map. This map is sufficiently detailed to permit the owner to view the smallest details of the terrain and of the fortifications, the shore and its defensive works. A significant site for the protection of the Great Lakes, as well as refugees and the Indian Department, as well as a staging point for British expeditions into the United States, this is an extremely useful map for many historic impressions.
Serving as both an accurate reference tool and as a collector's item, this map is an incredible addition to any collection and serves endless uses to both living historians and educators. It is important to note that this map has been backed onto osnaburg linen, permitting the owner to fold the map delicately (as the map is extremely fine) and in a period manner for travel and use by its owner, as well as military and government officials. Such maps were commonly available and the original map being reproduced was specifically backed and folded in this manner and to these exact dimensions.
This item is made to order and will be ready in less than two to three weeks (usually sooner) from the order date.
This wonderfully reproduced map comes to you on period high linen content paper, laid upon osnaburg linen, as would have been the case for travel maps of the period, suitable for collectors, historians and those with a passion for cartography.
