Antique Map of Maryland from the Early 18th Century
Nice example of Carey's map of Maryland, one of the best large format maps of the state to appear in a Commercial Atlas.
The map is attractively hand colored by counties and shows, towns, roads, mountains, rivers, lakes, islands, bays and a host of other early important details. Large inset of Western Maryland.
Carey's General Atlas published in 1814 was the first American Atlas to be offered for sale with hand coloring on the maps.
