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.
