Further Information

This is a very rare ‘first state’ of Sayer and Bennet’s map of Lake Champlain and Lake St. George.The main part of the map is that of Lake Champlain, based on a survey by Willam Brassier, taken in 1762 during the French Indian War.The survey for the inset map of Lake George was completed by Captain Jackson, earlier, in 1756.Both surveys had remained in manuscript form until the onset of the Revolutionary war in 1775, when London publishers Sayer and Bennett, in response to a demand of maps of the region engraved and published both surveys in this form.It was first issued in Jeffrey’s ‘American Atlas’ of 1776. This copy is beautifully coloured and highlights the 45 parallel boundary line between Ontario and New York.

Later in 1776 a ‘second state’ of the map was published in Sayer and Bennett's American Military Pocket Atlas - the so-called ‘Holster Atlas’. That second, and far more common, state of the map differs from this in as much as it shows the engagement of the British and American Fleets off the Isle of Valcour on October 11, 1776, their movements down the river, and a second engagement off Crown Point on October 13, 1776, with lettered references. Notes relating to observations, events and structures appear on lake Champlain and keys are provided on the Lake George inset.
