Description

One of the Earliest Obtainable Maps of the State of Georgia

Joseph Scott's detailed map of Georgia and West Florida, published in Philadelphia in 1795.

The map is highly detailed and includes Georgia extending to the Mississippi River, with West Florida included. Includes many early place names. The map appeared Scott's The United States Gazetteer: Containing an Authentic Description of the Several States. Their Situation, Extent, Boundaries, Soil, Produce, Climate, Population, Trade and Manufactures. Together with the Extent, Boundaries, and Population of their Respective Counties. Also, an Exact account of the Cities, Towns, Harbours, Rivers, Bays, Lakes, Mountains, &c. Illustrated with Nineteen Maps, Printed in Philadelphia by F. & R. Bailey, at Yorick's Head, No. 116,

The map is quite scarce, this being the second example we have ever offered.
