[North America] Pownall, A New and Correct Map of North America with the West India Islands...which Compose The British Empire... London, 1777. Original outline color. Strong impression. VG+. Four sheets joined two and two, each pair 20 x 45½; if joined 40 x 45½ overall. Created in 1755 by Emanuel Bowen and John Gibson, this map drew its geography from John Mitchell's landmark map of the same year, though it extends further south to include the West Indies and Central America. After the 1763 Treaty of Paris Bowen updated it to reflect new boundaries, as well as including text of several Treaty articles in the Atlantic. The 2nd issue during the Revolutionary War. Pownall was Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony and adds his observations. The western borders of Virginia and North and South Carolina now end at the Appalachians rather than the Mississippi. Two large inset maps: Baffin and Hudson Bay, and California after Father Kino shows it as a peninsula. Large attractive title cartouche plus a second with distance scales.
