¤ Joshua Fry and Peter Jefferson, the father of Thomas Jefferson, drew "A Map of the Most Inhabited...." in 1751 but it was not engraved until later, presumably in 1754. Only two copies of the first state are known, one in the New York Public Library and the other in the Alderman Library of the University of Virginia at Charlottesville. Multiple derivatives of this map were produced until 1800, drawn by men who personally surveyed many of the mapped areas. The revised 1755 edition is particularly impressive in the amount of detail shown in the Ohio Valley and the transallegheny west. A table of distances and the arteries of roads were extracted from a personal journal by John B. Dalrymple, captain of the Virginia regiment, and the information was incorporated into this edition.
