This is a small, but important map which influenced British perceptions of the Colonies until the Treaty of 1763. It shows 'Walker's Settlement 1750' on the Cumberland River. Emmanuel Bowen (ca. 1720-1767) was an engraver, print setter and publisher in London. He was appointed Engraver of Maps to both King George II of England and Louis XV of France. It was initially published in the London Magazine in 1749.
