“Map of New Hampshire & Vermont.” Philadelphia: Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co., 1853. 15 x 12 1/2. Lithographic transfer from engraved plate. Original hand color. Very good condition.
A strong and beautifully crafted map of New Hampshire and Vermont from the mid-nineteenth century, published by Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co.. This firm took over the publication of S. Augustus Mitchell’s important Universal Atlas in 1850, and they continued to produce up-dated maps that were amongst the best issued in the period. A series of tables gives distances between cities by stage, and another pair of tables gives population information. The detail is very clearly and precisely rendered, and with the warm hand coloring this is a most interesting and attractive map of the state.
