Description

Matthew Carey's double-page engraved map of Massachusetts, from Carey's General Atlas.

The map is hand colored by counties and shows towns, rivers, lakes, mountains, roads, islands, bays, shoals, and a host of other details.

Carey published the first American atlas to be published in the United States, compiling a number of excellent maps from indigenous sources in the first compilation of American maps. It is one of the best maps of Massachusetts to appear in a commercial atlas in the first half of the century.
