New York & New Jersey by Samuel Holland, published by Thomas Jefferys. 1775

One of the most influential and comprehensive maps of the region published during the American Revolution.

The first state of Holland's large, important map was a separate publication, c. 1768. In 1775, the title was changed, three insets were added and the imprint was dated 20 Dec 1775.


Thomas Jefferys (c. 1719-1771)

Thomas Jefferys was an outstanding English cartographer who was the leading map supplier of his day. He engraved and printed maps for government and other official bodies and produced a wide range of commercial maps and atlases. He made some of the finest maps of the time of North America and the West Indies.
He was appointed Geographer to the Prince of Wales and George II. However, in 1766, he became bankrupt and subsequently, the publication of his maps was managed by Robert Sayer, who in 1774 was joined in partnership by John Bennett and William Faden.
