1836 Henry Schenk Tanner
On Hold
Description

Detailed and interesting map of Philadelphia, hand colored apparently by wards, although curiously so.

Includes an index of public buildings, hotels, churches (including a Sews Synagogue) and banks. Tanner's Universal Atlas was the forerunner of a series of Atlases continued by Mitchell, Thomas Cowperthwait, Desilver, SA Mitchell Jr, and others which extended to the early 1890s. Separate Tanner maps are increasingly scarce on the market and highly sought after. Special detail has been given to this map of Tanner's home city.
