Catalogue Note

With contemporary manuscript additions

The first 18th century map of New England, it was originally issued as the frontispiece to Cotton Mather's history of the Bay Colony,  Magnalia Christi Americana: or the Ecclesiastical History of New England from Its First Planting. (This example is likely a separate issue.) The geographic information is chiefly drawn from an earlier map by Thornton, Morden, and Lea.
