Thomas G. Bradford. “Maine.” From A Universal Illustrated Atlas. Boston: Charles D. Strong., -1842. 14 1/4 x 11 3/8. Engraving by G.W. Boynton. Original hand color. Very good condition.
An engraved map by Thomas G. Bradford, a Boston map publisher, showing Maine at the beginning of the fourth decade of the nineteenth century. The map was original drawn and issued by Thomas Bradford in 1838 and here reissued four years later. Detail is very good, showing towns, counties, and the myriad rivers throughout the state. The map is attractively presented with strong, original hand-color, and precise engraving.
