Map of the State Of New York
Anthony Finley, Philadelphia 1824 - First edition of a highly important pocket map of New York State. Orleans County is not yet present. A second edition, with Orleans County, and dated 1825, was included in Finley's A New American Atlas (1826). Rumsey notes that the atlas was an "attempt to compete with Tanner's American Atlas. the cartography and engraving are equal to Tanner, although the scale and map size are smaller." In 1831 the plates for the atlas were sold to S. Augustus Mitchell, who revised the maps and brought out a new edition in that year. Mitchell continued to issued the maps separately in pocket form until about 1850. Not in Phillips. Rumsey 2587. Full period color, 17 x 20½ inches, folding into gilt-stamped brown leather covers with front cover stamped "New York." Inset in lower left: "Profile of the Grand Erie Canal." Statistical table at right. Sales label for Finley's "New and Correct Pocket Maps" on inside front cover. Minor repairs. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
