About this Item

Published: Philadelphia, 1765 Medium: Line Engraving Dimensions: Paper size: 17 x 30 3/4 inches; frame size: 28 3/8 x 32 1/4 inches. A Topographical Plan of that part of the Indian Country through which the Army under the Command of Colonel Bouquet marched in the Year 1764 containing ¿A map of the country of the Ohio and Muskingum rivers, showing the situation of the Indian towns with respect to the army under the command of Colonel Bouquet¿ A Topographical Plan of that part of the Indian Country. . . is one of the most attractive maps on a small scale engraved in the eighteenth century. It is important for two reasons - the map is a visual testament to the significance of personal observation in the recording of Ohio¿s geographic data and, more crucially, the map served in large part as the basis for Hutchins¿s greatest work A new Map of the Western Parts of Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland and North Carolina. . . It is a compilation of geographical information that is far above the average of the day, embodying as it does the information furnished by an engineer in the field and one who was in a position to draw his map with authority and conviction. Thomas Hutchins¿s dual map, published in 1765, represents a composite picture of the country through which Colonel Bouquet marched in 1764. The location of the sixteen campsites established by Bouquet during the march are shown along the top portion of the map, while a general map showing the land between the Ohio and Muskingum rivers fills the main portion, elaborately contained within beautiful baroque framing lines.
