Description

Nice example of Matthew Carey's map of Maine, one of the best large format maps of Maine to appear prior to its becoming a State.

Six counties are shown. The northern regions are barely known, with no settlements and virtually no topographical information. In the south, the extensive lake and river systems are noted, along with towns, roads, bays, islands, shoals, and other important features.

Carey's General Atlas first published in 1814 was the first American Atlas to be offered for sale with hand coloring on the maps.
