Plan of the Encampment and Position of the Army under His Excellency Lt. General Burgoyne at Swords House on Hudson's River near Stillwater on Sept. 17th, with the Positions of that part of the Army engaged on the 19th Sept., 1777. Drawn by W. C. Wilkinson Lt. 62d. Regt. Afst. Engr. Engraved by Wm. Faden, from Burgoyne's book A State of the Expedition From Canada, As Laid Before the House of Commons. The partially colored engraved map depicts the battle positions and troop movements of the opposing armies. The map Depicts among other particulars, the First and Second Positions of the Army engagement on September 19th and also, tipped to the margin is an overlay map depicting the Third and Fourth Positions of the Army on the same date. Streeter states of the book and map: Burgoyne defends his actions in the campaign that led to the disaster at Saratoga. He proves in this work that his army was half the size he had demanded, and was badly provided for, 15 3/4" x 15 1/2".

Competitive in-house shipping is available for this lot.


The engraving is in very good condition, pages with some edge wear, including some loss to let side, old tape residue along margins, a few small edge tears along creases.
