A New Map of Georgia, with Part of Carolina, Florida and Louisiana. Drawn from Original Draughts assisted by the most approved Maps and Charts. Collected by Eman: Bowen . . .
Fine example of Bowen's map of Georgia. Bowen's map of Georgia is one of the most highly sought after of all maps of Georgia. Published in John Harris' Navigantium atque Itinerantium Bibliotheca, or Complete Collection of Voyages and Travels, first published in London in 1705, the map of Georgia first appeared in the 1744-48 and 1764 editions, when a new Chapter was added, giving a history of Georgia. The map covers the region from Charleston to the Mississippi River. Cumming notes that it is one of the best large format maps of the region during the period, showing coastal settlements in South Carolina, the Indian Tribes friendly or hostile to the English, and the chief trading paths of the period. Indian territories are shown by fine dotted lines. The Georgia roads and settlements are particularly complete. Excellent detail along the Flint River. (London, 1748) [color: Uncolored, size: 18.5 x 14 inches, condition: VG+]
