The London journal, Gentleman’s Magazine, was the source of some of the most interesting and elegant maps and views of North America from the eighteenth century. Through this octavo sized monthly magazine, the English gentleman was kept well informed through fine visual images, as well as articles, about the latest news in the developing colonies. The most up-to-date, authoritative sources were used, making for the dissemination of, and subsequent preservation of, some of the best early historical documents about America.
