Description

Early Map of the Tennassee Government

The second state of one of the earliest obtainable maps of Tennessee, based upon John Reid's map of 1796.

Payne's map was first issued in 1799. It includes marvelous primitive details in Western Tennessee, and a number of early boundary lines, including the southern boundary of the Military Reservation, and interesting notes about a level route to Pensacola, High Broken Gound, etc. A number of early towns and roads, and a few Indian Villages.

This map appeared in Volume IV of John Payne's New and Complete Universal Geography… published in New York by John Low at the Shakespeare Head, No. 332 Water-Street, in 1799 and after. An essential map for Tennessee Collectors.
