New York
(Deed, New York)
1790
Ephemera
Authors New York
Full Title (Deed from the state of New York, signed by Governor George Clinton, Granting 600 acres of land to Thomas Garrison in the township of Cincinnatus, Montgomery County).
Note An early deed with the large (9cm diameter) seal of the state attached. The State granted lands in what was designated as the Military Tract to Revolutionary War veterans. The tract comprised twenty five townships of 60,000 acres each, each consisting of 100 lots of 600 acres. Grantees received one lot. Thomas Garrison was granted lot 80 of Township 25, Cincinnatus, by this deed. In 1793, Simeon DeWitt produced a map of the Military Tract, one of his first surveys. The Military Tract was one of the first uses of Township surveys built on square lots of uniform size. Eventually, the U.S. Land Office used a 660 acre unit (1 mile square) as the building block for its surveys in Ohio and westward. Printed form filled in with pen-and-ink and including the signature of Geo. Clinton.

Ephemera
Authors Jefferys, Thomas
Full Title Thomas Jefferys Engraver Geographer to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, at y Corner of St. Martins Lane near Charing Cross Sells great Variety of Prints English and Foreign by the most Celebrated Masters And all Sorts of Maps and Globes. Ant: Walker. Inv: del: et Sculpt. (trade card advertisement).
Note A rare advertisement for Jefferys' publications and products. The date is estimated. It is interesting that this does not emphasize the maps as much as the prints, reflecting the fact that he had a large business at this time as a general engraver. Apparently, he published this trade card to "mark his arrival in the Strand" (Harley, Imago Mundi XX), and to announce the opening of his new premises there. Card uncolored.

Authors Colton, J. H.
Full Title (Title Page to) Subscribers to Colton's American Atlas and Atlas of The World. New York: J.H. Colton and Company. London: Trubner and Company. (Leather bound subscription book issued by Colton for his salesmen).
Note J.C. French's subscription book, Cambridge, Mass. Jared Sparks (President of Harvard) is the first subscriber, followed by C.S. Cartee, and other eminent men. This book reveals that the Atlas was published in 27 parts starting in 1854, and was still available in parts in 1855 (see news articles in rear). Prices, bindings, coloring detailed. Apparently the atlas was only available by subscription in 1854, 55, 56, and part of 57. The list ends in 1857, perhaps indicating that the marketing changed, or that Mr. French went on to other pursuits. Book bound in full red leather with "Colton's Atlas" in gilt on cover.
