Unit price per 

By: John Thomson

Date: 1817 (published) Edinburgh

Dimensions: 19.5 x 23.25 (50 cm x 59 cm)

This finely engraved, highly detailed map of the Northeastern part of the United States includes New England, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, etc. Indiana is depicted in northern Virginia, and the shape of both Vermont and Rhode Island differ significantly from the true borders. Many of the forts to the south of Lakes Erie and Rhode Island are delineated.

A region named the ‘Township of the Six Nations’ is shown north of Lake Erie. The ‘District of Main’ is shown with significant details on the seaboard but relatively few in the interior. Although Thomson purposefully made his maps more scientific and less decorative than earlier maps, this lovely map features a fine vignette of ‘The Great Falls of Niagara’, which is most definitely an interesting decorative embellishment.

Condition: This map is in B+ condition, printed on heavy paper. Published colored.
