(AMERICAN REVOLUTION.) Attack of the Rebels upon Fort Penobscot in the Province of New England in . . . 1779. Hand-colored engraved map, 16 1/2x19 1/4 inches, on 2 conjoined sheets; minimal foxing, one vertical fold, mount remnants on verso. [London], 18 December 1785
Shows the disastrous American assault on British-held Fort Penobscot in Maine in August 1779, with a short summary of the action. Paul Revere led the American artillery in the battle (see "rebel batteries" marked just west of the fort); it was not his finest moment. Apparently issued in conjunction with Rapin's Impartial History of England . . . with the Continuation to the Year 1786, but not generally found with it. Nebenzahl 40.
