Engraving with original line color. I. Harris Sculp. While most of the information displayed here was derived from De L'Isle, the temptation to insert imaginary topography in blank spaces was strong in the commercial cartography of early Georgian times. Fifteen years later the Pennsylvania-Maryland border dispute, for which he drew and re-drew the crucial map, taught him the error of doing so. Here, in this map, there is a range of imaginary mountains and a plain extending through what is now Michigan. Sheet size: 21 x 24". Inventory#: p1035pmat. Bookseller Inventory # 001035
