Description:

Crisp impression on watermarked paper with original outline color. Minor printer's crease at top of fold; trimmed to the plate mark on left hand side. This is the French edition of the iconic Fry-Jefferson map--arguably the most important eighteenth century map of the region. Peter Jefferson was Thomas's father. Due to the rarity and value of the four-sheet English version ($35,000+), the first state of the French version is the earliest affordable map to show the interior of Virginia beyond the Tidewater with any accuracy. References: Pedley 470; Phillips 5982; Sellers and Van Ee 1432; Swem 184. Plate mark 19 3/8"x 25 7/8"; sheet size 20 1/4" x 26" First state, with the name of the engraver Elisabeth Haussard beneath the cartouche; the Fairfax Grant including the Northern Neck and the large area to the Northwest of it marked as "Limites du Lord Fairfax" along the diagonal straight line in the Northwest; and a portion of the Pennsylvania border running North-South (upper left).
