"Connecticut (and Parts Adjacent)"
Published by Covens & Mortier, 1780
Published towards the end of Covens & Mortier's publishing career, this unusual map of Connecticut & Long Island, published in English from a prior map by Bernard Roman in 1777, is a highly detailed mapping of the newly founded United States.
Bernard Romans was a British surveyor who eventually took the American side in the Revolution. Prior to the Revolution, he was active in surveying the Florida area, and also produced an unusual manuscript map of "The Colony of New York and its Surroundings." Later he planned fortifications on the Hudson River and made maps of the region around the Hudson Highlands.
