Nice early map of these two states, which until about 20 years early had comprised a single territory. The eastern part of Alabama is still the lands of the Creek and Cherokee Indians and a number of counties are still not present. The Northern half of Mississippi is dominated by oversized counties and Indian Lands. Includes early towns, counties, rivers and other points of interest. Princeton or N. Mexico appears in Washington Parish. Several Indian Villages located. A nice early map.
Thomas Gamaliel Bradford (1802-1887) was an American geographic publisher. He hailed from Bradford, Massachusetts and began his publishing career by working for the America Encyclopedia. Then, he edited and republished the Atlas Designed to Illustrate the Abridgement of Universal Geography, Modern & Ancient, which had originally been offered in French by Adrian Balbi. In 1835, he published another atlas, A Comprehensive Atlas: Geographical, Historical & Commercial, and, in 1838, An Illustrated Atlas Geographical, Statistical and Historical of the United States and Adjacent Countries. His interests were primarily in educational publishing and he was one of the first mapmakers to show Texas as an independent country.
