An early London derivative of Joshua Fisher's important chart of the Delaware Bay and river, first produced in 1756, then expanded in 1775, to aid navigation for ships sailing toward Philadelphia. The map is oriented to the west, with Philadelphia depicted at the far right, and extends to Cape Hinlopen at the far left, with Cape May at bottom. A handsome example.
