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.
