Engraved map of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, partially hand-colored. Ornate cartouche depicting William Penn trading with native Americans surrounded by indigenous flora and fauna. It extends from New England to the Chesapeake. The British colonies are confined east of the Appalachian Mountains and are depicted with some early, inaccurate, boundary configurations. New Hampshire's entire eastern border is the Atlantic Ocean. Massachusetts is just below New Hampshire, but does not include Boston or Cape Cod, which are shown as part of Connecticut. New York is divided into three sections and includes the western part of Massachusetts and Vermont. Lotter originally engraved this map for his father-in-law, Matthias Seutter. In 1756 he then succeeded Seutter and replaced the imprint with his own.
