Description

True first state of the Samuel Lewis map of Maryland, from the American Edition of Guthrie's Geography Improved.

The maps from this work were also included in Carey's American Atlas (1795) and Carey's General Atlas (1796). This is the first map of Maryland to appear in a commercial atlas published in America. The map shows counties, towns, roads, rivers, lakes, mountains, islands, and a host of other details. The City of Washington is noted. A large inset shows the western part of the State.

Condition Description
A nice example, with wide margins and a fine dark impression. A bit toned, with occasional soiling. There are also two minor repaired tears, one of which touches the printed image and thother extending about one inch into the map.
