American RevolutionFirst American Printing Of A Revolutionary War Battle Map

1777, Printed Map, “A VIEW of the Present Seat of WAR, at and near NEW-YORK, An Astronomical Diary; Or Almanack.” By Nathaniel Low, Printed by J. Gill, Boston, MA, Fine.
24 pages, 7” x 4.25”, self wrappers. The cover notes that 1777 is “... the first Year of American Independence, which began July fourth, 1776.” The highlight of this scarce almanac is the first American printing of a Revolutionary War battle map: “A View of the Present Seat of War, at and near New-York.” The key designates “General Washington’s Lines on New-York Island,” as well as the “Fort at Powles-Hook... Bunker-Hill, near New York... The Sound... King’s Bridge... Hell Gate... Fort Washington... Mount Washington... (and) Governor’s Island.” Among many interesting features, this 1777 Almanac has “An Address to the Tories” beginning: “I cannot call you friends... every enemy to his country and its liberties, I esteem an enemy to myself.” Dates pointed out are March 5 (Bostom Massacre); April 19 (Battle at Concord); June 17 (Battle of Charlestown (Bunker Hill)); and, December 16 (Boston Tea Party). Almanac has some moderate age toning, some chipping on the untrimmed outer edges. A scarce and desirable almanac.
