Elegant map of Maine by David Burr, one of the most important cartographic publishers of the early 19th Century.
The map is highly detailed, showing towns, roads, rivers, lakes, mountains, and a host of other details.
The map locates the disputed Canadian-American border along Maine's northern boundary, which was then very hotly contested. It includes the American claims north of Temiscouata Lake, the English/New Brunswick claims south of Chimney Lake and the boundary line recommended by the King of the Netherlands during the boundary dispute negotiations between the US and England.
A fascinating map and one of the few atlas maps to address the boundary dispute in such detail.
