Background Notes

Engraved by Bernard Romans (1720-1784). The Swissborn engraver lived in the British colonies from 1757 to 1780. He settled in Connecticut in the early 1770s and in 1775 published the book he is famous for, A Concise Natural History of East and West Florida. In 1775, he accompanied Benedict Arnold on his expedition to Fort Ticonderoga and was involved in the capture of Fort George. Not only has his work been influential in the field of cartography and history, but it has been of significant value in locating historic shipwrecks.
