Note:
Pendleton's Lithography published many Massachusetts town plans starting with Lynn and Saugus in 1829 and continuing to 1836. The plans had been drawn at the request of the State Legislature to facilitate the making of an accurate map of the state, which was eventually published by Borden in 1844. The town plans are some of the earliest published using lithography. This map of Amherst is especially attractive, with a large view of the College and Mount Pleasant Institution. Notable property owners are shown, including Prof. Hitchcock and E. Dickinson (the father of Emily Dickinson). Shows also churches, schools, houses, factories, mills, hotels, woodland, alluvial land, ponds, etc. Relief shown by hachures. With black top and bottom rollers. Map is without color.
