“North America/ Sheet XI/ Parts of North and South Carolina.” London: Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, 1833. 15 x 13. Engraving by J. & C. Walker. Original outline color. Very good condition.
An original antique map by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK). This wonderful English enterprise was devoted to the spreading of up-to-date information and the enhancing of understanding. This map shows all but the western-most part of North and South Carolina. Rivers, roads and canals are given much attention. Counties are named and indicated with color outline. The excellent detail and precise engraving is typical of the Society’s work, providing as detailed and accurate a picture of this region as was available in the early 1830s.
