Description

Nice example of John Reid's map of Vermont, the second folio map of the state to appear in a commercial atlas.

The map is drawn largely from Mathew Carey's map of Vermont, which is considered the first folio atlas map of the state, which was in turn engraved by Amos Doolittle. This edition was engraved by Roberts.

The map shows 7 counties, townships, rivers, mountains, lakes, roads, etc.

An essential map of Vermont collectors.

John Reid's American Atlas was the second folio sized atlas published in the US. Reid's atlas was originally issued to accompany Winterbotham's Historical, Geographical, Commercial and Philosophical View of the United States. It was originally issued with 20 maps, which were engraved by Benjamin Tanner (9), David Martin (5), D. Anderson (2), John Scoles and John Roberts. Two of the maps are without credits.
