This is an important eighteenth-century American made map of Rhode Island drawn and engraved by Benjamin Tanner. This map was issued in Reid's landmark American Atlas in 1796, which was published to accompany William Winterbotham's An historical, geographical, commercial, and philosophical view of the United States of America.
The map shows the political divisions within the state, all the towns and cities, as well as mills, bridges, and roads throughout the state. The rivers and small lakes are indicated as well, and "Hopkins Hill" is noted in the center of the state. This is one of the most desirable and scarcest of Rhode Island maps.
Condition: This map is in A+ condition with no tears or holes. The map exhibits a strong and dark impression on clean paper with full margins on all sides.
