An interesting map of the Hudson Valley, etched on a Powder horn.
The Library of Congress indicates that it is from the holdings of one of the U.S.'s service academies, but does not indicate which one. It goes on to describe it as having:
pictorial depiction[s] of the rivers, names of riverside forts and towns (including New York, Albany, Niagara, and Lake Champlain), pictorial representation of houses, view of "New York" at wide end, and British coat-of-arms with motto "Dieu et Mon Droit".
