Faint offsetting of title cartouche next to cartouche and little offset browning throughout the map but very faint and not offensive - see magnified image. One spot in right margin; few stray splashes of grey hand colouring , barely noticeable in left quarter of map else very good condition.. Evans' landmark map, published from the Surveys of Evans, Thomas Walker and Christopher Gist in 1750-51 and used by General Braddock in the French & Indian War. 18 states of this map have been documented and this is a pirated edition by Laurie and Whittle published in London in 1794. However it is the first to show oil (Petroleum) in Pennsylvania and coal in Ohio and the first to accurately map the trans-Appalachian and Ohio river region and is cited as one of the two or three most important maps of late Colonial America. Highly detailed with much detail: only way passable with horses/White Woman's/Antique Sculptures etc Many tribes named. Stunning map.
