Full Title: A plan of Boston in New England with its environs including Milton, Dorchester, Roxbury, Brooklin, Cambridge, Medford, Charlestown, parts of Malden and Chelsea, with the military works constructed in those parts in the years 1775 and 1776; Maker: Henry Pelham. Engraved in aqua tinta by Francis Jukes; Publisher: Boston : W. A. Butterfield, c1907; Date: 1907; Description: Originally published in 1777, this 1907 facsimile printed by Boston publisher W. A. Butterfield reproduces the incredible detail captured by Loyalist Henry Pelham as he surveyed the theater of the Siege of Boston. The area covered is from modern-day Winthrop to Medford and from the area known as Squantum Point Park (in Quincy) to Brookline and shows major military works; roadways; important public buildings, farms, and wharves; rivers, creeks, and ponds and the Harbor Islands. Pelham has listed individual land owners (for example Henry Howell Williams's property on Noddles Island). In the upper left corner, this map includes an illustration of a document issued to Pelham on 28 August 1775, which granted him access to plot the geography of both British and American forces.; MHS Digital Image: 5005
