One of the Earliest American-Printed Maps of Maryland and Delaware
Attractive and uncommon map of Maryland, Delaware, and Washington, D.C., published in Boston by Jedidiah Morse in 1796. The map shows early roads, townships, rivers, and more, and provides a fantastic look at the region during the early statehood period.
Also shown on the map are county borders and the beginnings of the Appalachians. Washington appears in its diamond-shaped layout, with Georgetown marked and the organized structure of the city represented. An inset map shows the Maryland Panhandle and Allegany county.
This copperplate engraving first appeared in Morses' The American Universal Geography, one of the earliest American-published atlases.
