Map of Massachusetts
Map of Massachusetts
Finely-detailed, archival reproduction of an antique map of Massachusetts from 1775 printed on acid-free, 100% cotton rag fine art paper with a matte finish and archival pigment inks.
Title: The Seat of War in New England, by an American Volunteer, with the Marches of the Several Corps Sent by the Colonies Towards Boston, with the Attack on Bunkers-Hill
Creator: R. Sayer and J. Bennett
Detailing events in the American Revolutionary War in 1775, this map shows troops from Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Hampshire, as well as General Washington's troops in Massachusetts, marching towards Boston. Includes two smaller maps: 'Plan of Boston Harbour, from an actual survey', and 'Plan of the town of Boston with the attack on Bunkers-Hill in the peninsula of Charlestown, the 17th of June, 1775.'
Where possible, we try to offer print sizes that match modern standard size frames, but since many antique maps were printed with different proportions than modern standard sizes, this is not always possible. The most common standard size frames are 8"x10", 11"x14", and 16"x20". These sizes are widely available in any store that sells frames. Less common standard sizes are 8"x8", 8"x12", 9"x12", 10"x15", 12"x12", 12"x16", 12"x18", and 16"x16". These sizes are available in most well-stocked stores that sell frames.
If you purchase a print that is not one of these standard sizes, you will most likely have to go to a frame shop to purchase a custom frame, or use one of the many online custom frame vendors.
For each size this map is offered in, you can purchase a print with either the 'no borders' or the 'plus 1/2" borders' option.
For prints with the 'no borders' option, the size listed will be the exact size of the printed area as well as the exact size of the paper. For example, a size of 11"x14" (no borders) means the exact size of the printed area will be 11"x14" and the exact size of the paper will also be 11"x14". This is a good option if you plan to frame the print in a frame without a mat.
For prints with the 'plus 1/2" borders' option, an additional 1/2" blank border will be added to each side. For example, a size of 11"x14" (plus 1/2" borders) means the exact size of the printed area will be 11"x14" and the exact size of the paper will be 12"x15". This is a good option if you plan to frame the print in a frame with a mat so there is overlap between the mat and the print.
