Large four-sheet engraved map measuring nearly 4' x 3.5' showing North America in 1784, with sovereignty of the thirteen colonies belonging to the United States following the Treaty of Paris that concluded the Revolutionary War. Published in Ausburg, Germany by Mathew Albert Lotter and Georg Frederic Lotter, 1784. Map is titled at upper right, ''A new and correct map of North America with the West India Islands. Divided according to the last Treaty of Peace, concluded at Paris the 20th of Jan. 1783. wherein are particularly distinguished the Thirteen Provinces wich [sic] compose the United States of North America''. A cartouche underneath shows tradesmen and workers on the banks of Bermuda, and two insets show Baffin and Hudson's Bay beneath the Arctic, and land bordering the ''Sea of California'' partially described as ''The Passage by Land to California''. Map measures 46.875'' x 41''. Professionally backed to linen and lightly mounted to board. Minute foxing and a few spots of repair. Overall very good to near fine condition given age including superior color contrast. With fascinating detail, map would anchor a room and serve as an excellent topic of ongoing reflection and discussion.
