Description

This is one of the earliest American maps of New Hampshire from the first American gazetteer. Joseph T. Scott, a Philadelphia engraver and publisher, issued his gazetteer during the first days of American cartography. The maps of the new states and territories are all very detailed especially given the early age. Major roads and towns are indicated, as is some indication of the orography of the White Mountains. Eighteenth century script is enhanced by decorative flourishes in the title and the map is surrounded by a Federalist style border.
