'A map of Philadelphia and parts adjacent by N. Scull and G. Heap' by N Scull & G Heap (1777). Antique copperplate map, 35.0 x 30.5cm, 13.75 x 12 inches; Please note that this is a folding map.

The map was printed to illustrate the Philadelphia campaign (1777–1778) of the American Revolutionary War, a British initiative to gain control of Philadelphia, at that time the seat of the Second Continental Congress. British General William Howe, after unsuccessfully attempting to draw the Continental Army under General George Washington into a battle in northern New Jersey, embarked his army on transports, and landed them at the northern end of Chesapeake Bay. From there, he advanced northward toward Philadelphia. Washington prepared defenses against Howe's movements at Brandywine Creek, but was flanked and beaten back in the Battle of Brandywine on September 11, 1777, resulting in Howe's occupation of Philadelphia. Washington then unsuccessfully counter-attacked one of Howe's garrisons at Germantown before retreating to Valley Forge for the winter.
