February 6 Scott Max Edelson Lecture

 

 

Hello Leigh,

 

 

Dear Former Member:

 

We know you'll want to attend Scott Max Edelson's lecture at 6:30 pm Wednesday, February 6 for the New York Map Society at Avenues: The World School, Headquarters, 17th Floor Boardroom, 11 East 26th St. (between Madison and Fifth Avenues), New York City.

 

His talk will be on his book "The New Map of Empire: How Britain 

Imagined America Before Independence."

 

After the Treaty of Paris ended the Seven Years’ War in 1763, British 

America stretched from Hudson Bay to the Florida Keys, from the 

Atlantic coast to the Mississippi River, and across new islands in the 

West Indies. To better rule these vast dominions, Britain set out to map 

its new territories with unprecedented rigor and precision. Edelson’s 

"The New Map of Empire" pictures the contested geography of the 

British Atlantic world and offers new explanations of the causes and 

consequences of Britain’s imperial ambitions in the generation before 

the American Revolution.

 

Free and open-to-the-public but please RSVP to:

Please take a moment now to re-join your fellow map lovers in the New York Map Society. We hope you'll be able to attend Scott's talk. If not, we'll be making a video of the presentation, to be available later on our site.

 

Cordially,
