Title: 'Carte de la Virginie et du Mariland'.

A map of the States of New Jersey, Delaware, Pensilvania, Maryland, Virginia and Caroline which ten years earlier had declared independence from Great Britain.

This map was included in an uncommon miniature atlas measuring 10.5 cm by 6,5 cm (approx). In order to fit within the covers it was folded three times. Through successive unfolding and refolding the paper suffered slight damage at one or two of the intersections. A professional restorer (national library) has repaired the damage without loss. At the same time the image was de-acified, cleaned (but not bleached white) and pressed.
