[Fougt, Henrik]:
BESKRIFNING OFVER DE ENGELSKA COLONIERNE I NORD-AMERICA; UTDRAGEN AF DE TILFORLATLIGASTE ARBETEN, SOM I DETTA AMNE UTKOMMIT I ENGLAND AREN 1776 OCH 1777
Stockholm. 1777.. 32pp. plus folding map, 10 x 16 1/4 inches. Contemporary plain stiff wrappers. Paper soiled, torn along spine. Early ownership signatures on front pastedown. Quite clean and neat inside. Very good. In a half morocco box. A little-known and scarce Swedish guide to the American colonies, issued in the early years of the Revolution. Each of the thirteen colonies is discussed in its own section, with details on counties and towns, early exploration, colonization and history, climate, inhabitants, and more. The formerly Swedish colony of Delaware gets surprisingly little attention. The very interesting (and apparently quite scarce) Revolutionary map is entitled "Seat of War in America 1777" in English and Swedish, but is otherwise all in English. It has a small inset of the entire East Coast, but the main part of the map shows the region from the Chesapeake Bay up to Massachusetts and New Hampshire. It is a well-drawn map, the focus of which is the location of forts and large landholdings. OCLC locates a total of ten copies. Scarce. SABIN 5047. HOWES B398, "aa." OCLC 187040219, 187040219.
