Chapman's New Sectional Map of Wisconsin
Milwaukee: S. Chapman; New York: McKenzie & Simmons; Chicago: Bamford & Baldwin, 1860 [Engraved and printed by L. Lipman, Practical Lithography, Milwaukee]. Folding pocket map, printed on two sheets joined, full period hand coloring, ornamental border. Folds into publisher's blindstamped cloth, title stamped in gilt on the upper cover. (Inked stamp on verso, short repaired tear). 33 1/2 x 29 1/2 inches. Scarce issue of Chapman's sectional map of Wisconsin depicting the entire state. First issued in 1853, with successive editions in 1855 and 1856, Chapman's pocket map of Wisconsin depicted the southern half of the state, the area surveyed at the time of the map's publication. In 1857, Chapman first issued a map depicting the entire state; i.e. using the lower half of his map from 1853 and attaching a second sheet depicting the upper half. New surveys, particularly in the northwest part of the territory, prompted this 1860 issue, with substantive changes to counties, railroads, etc. The addition of New York and Chicago publishers suggest that Chapman attempted to market this map to a wider audience. Phillips, A List of Maps of America, p. 1077 (1853 issue).
