Additional Details

Attractive 18th-century map of Long Island associated with the second part of Muller's extremely rare German account of the American Revolution, "Geographische Belustigungen zur Erlauterung der Neuesten Weltgeschichte". Part 2 of that work is recorded in less than five institutional examples and has no copies traced in auction records (only twice has the first part, containing a map of Boston, appeared at auction in the last 100 years).
