A New Map of Part of the UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA, containing the Carolinas and Georgia also the Floridas and part of the Bahama Islands
London., 1811. Copper engraving. Original colour. Very good condition. Some minor offset. Size: 52 x 46 cm. (20½ x 18 inches) Beautiful map of southern part of early nineteenth-century United States, when the Mississippi formed the western border. It shows the extent of development in the South at the time; an interesting detail is the native-American lands of western Georgia (present day Mississippi and Alabama). John Cary is considered by some to be the finest of English cartographers. His maps, although not the most decorative, appeal for their clarity, detail and the precision of engraving. When the Ordnance Survey began accurately mapping the UK, they used John Cary's style as the basis for their work. From Cary's New Universal Atlas.
