About this Item

Engraving. The first issue. This is William Faden's 1777 republication of Scull and Heap's 1752 map of Philadelphia. The 1752 map was virtually the only one of the city available at the outbreak if the Revolution. It was perhaps best known for its "Perspective View of the State House" (Independence Hall), the earliest printed view of this great American landmark. The original Scull and Heap version is so rare as to be virtually unobtainable, but in 1777, because of the great interest generated in the city by the signing there of the Declaration of Independence, this revised version was published by Faden in London. Faden's version contains updated detail, and the view of Independence Hall has been moved from the top to the bottom margin of the map. Bookseller Inventory # 000409
