Description

Highly detailed map of Central VA & MD, one of three maps of the Seat of War which appeared in the Dispatch Atlas, published by the Weekly Dispatch and engraved by Edward Weller in London. This second sheet of three shows the region from Alleghany, Hampshire, Hardy, Pendleton and Augusta Cos. to Washington, Jefferson, Fauquier, Orange & Culpepper Cos. The map is remarkably detailed. In addition to the usual roads, towns, rivers, etc., includes caves, springs, ferrys, creeks, and small villages which rarely appear on maps. The work is relatively scarce, with no example of the three sheets being offered in a dealer catalogue since 1995 (Murray Hudson #214). Not listed in Stephenson.
