Nice example of Mathew Carey's map of Tennessee from Carey's American Pocket Atlas, the third separately issued map of Tennessee to appear in a commercial atlas.

The northeastern corner of Tennessee is too far east. The Yaszoo River and Tombigbee River are identified. Includes nice topographical detail, plus forts, roads, towns, mountains, rivers, Muscle Shoals and other early details.

States of the Map

There are 3 known states of the map:

  • State 1 (1796): No roads.
  • State 2 (1801): In the upper border, a line has been added through the numerals for 10 degrees Longitude. Roads have been added.
  • State 3: (1805):  New place names include Port Royal, Palmyra, Jefferson, Franckfort, Craigfort, Kingston, Greenville and others.  A number of new roads are also added.

An essential map for Tennessee Collectors.
