One of the Earliest American-Printed Maps of New Jersey

Detailed map of New Jersey, from Morse's Universal Geography. This fantastic depiction of the state shows rivers, a number of towns, and the start of the Appalachians. Part of New York, Long Island, and Staten Island are visible.

The map was engraved by Samuel Hill, a famous early American engraver who collaborated with Morse on a number of cartographic projects. This copperplate engraving first appeared in Morses' The American Universal Geography, one of the earliest American-published atlases.
