Authors Atwood, J.M., Ensign & Thayer
Full Title Pictorial Map Of The United States. 1849. Published by Ensign & Thayer, 50 Ann Street, New York. Drawn & Engraved by J.M. Atwood, New York. Entered ... 1847 by Phelps, Ensign's & Thayer ... New York.
Note This is earlier than our 1849 Map of the United States (see #264) which uses the same base map. Here, San Francisco is named Yerba Buena (which name appeared only briefly on maps published in 1848-1849), the Gold Region has far fewer towns (no Sacramento City, Sutters City or Fremont), and the Humboldt River is not yet drawn in the Great Basin. The copyright date is still 1847. Wall map surrounded by drawings showing the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the landing of the pilgrims and numerous battles. A small inset map of Mexico and a chart showing the population of the United States are included. The map is in color by state or region. The gold region of California is shown in gold. Mounted on black rollers and backed with linen.

A very attractive map with views of the County Court House at Visalia and other important buildings, inset maps of towns, and eleven advertisements for local merchants. At the far right of the map, on the county line, is "Largest Tree in the World Diam. 46 Feet" with a small drawing of the tree. Vogdes lists one earlier map of the county, the 1867 Chapman and Gordon map. With black top and bottom rollers. Full color by township.

Note 1st edition was 1864. From Bancroft's Map the of Pacific States which appeared in 1863. Wheat says Bancroft changed the large Pacific States map in 1870, but we believe that the smaller maps such as this continue to be from the original 1863 or 1867 plates, updated to show railroad expansion and topographical changes. With black top and bottom rollers. Full color by county.

Wall Map
Authors Barker, Lucy M.
Full Title Lucy M. Barker's Map Of Connecticut.
Note Manuscript map. Dated by Bridgeport (1821 incorporation of city). Howard Welsh has two sheets of notes attempting to date this map by the appearance of the Southwick "notch" of 1805 (and noting that Thompson did not identify the appearance of the notch in 1805 as a map dating device). However, we think that Thompson's approach of the appearance of towns is best here. Who was Lucy Barker? The map is very well done. Edged in golden tan silk, with black top and bottom rollers. Outline color by county.

Holmes, Harrison & Co. London. Entered ... 1861 by Robert P. Smith ... Pennsylvania. Printed by T.S. Wagner, 38 Hudson St. Phila. (with 6 inset maps and 3 profiles).
Note Also published by Holmes Harrison & Co., London. Many changes from the 1861 edition in the west indicate that the 1861 edition was hurriedly put out without filling in all the topography. Under the title is a listing of the Slave States with the Note: "The States Marked thus * Claim to have seceded from the United States." Loss in the top four inches of the map, rebacked. Printed by T.P. Wagner, Philadelphia, who may have added the topographical information. This is the third Smith edition, after the 1861 and the early 1862. With black top and bottom rollers. The United States is panted in full color by county, Mexico by state. Shows settlements, transportation routes, and county boundaries. Tables of distances, and state sizes, date of admission, miles of railroads and population. Breakdown of churches by denominations. Time differences table.

Authors Smith, Robert P., Taintor, S. & Co.
Full Title The Washington Map Of The United States. By the Superintendent U.S. National Observatory, Washington D.C. 1861. S. Taintor & Co. Publisher, W.H. Holmes, Engraver. 334 Pennsylvania Ave. Washington D.C. F. Mahler, C.E. Head Draughtsman. Entered ... 1861 by Robert P. Smith ... Pennsylvania. (with 6 inset maps and 3 profiles).
Note Huge wall map similar in style and scale to Smith's New Naval and Military Map of the United States done in 1862. However, the Washington Map is a completely different engraving of the U.S., done by W.H. Holmes, who probably is not the same Holmes who worked with Hayden (that Holmes was born in 1846) but is most likely the Holmes mentioned in Tooley's Dictionary as the engraver for Chamber's Encyclopedia and Mitchell's Mexico (perhaps the father of the later Holmes?) The LOC copy (P-Maps 911) is dated 1862 and has in addition to Taintor, the Holmes, Harrison & Co., London, as publishers. Many inset views, portraits of the Presidents in the border, and thematic inset maps. Shows Colorado (created that year) and has an interesting, clear and stark rendition of the western topography. Another elaborate Smith production. An earlier edition, 1860, is listed by Phillips as done by M.F. Maury (Maury's name was dropped after the Civil War began because of his support for the Confederacy), also, a late edition, 1868, by H.H. Lloyd. This the first edition copyrighted by Smith. See our two 1862 editions. With black top and bottom rollers. The United States is painted in full color by county, Mexico by state. Shows settlements, transportation routes, and county boundaries. Tables of distances, and state sizes, date of admission, miles of railroads and population. Breakdown of churches by denominations. Time differences table. Ornate margins with vignettes of presidents. 1860 census by county and cities. Inset maps include geology, climate, wildlife, food crops, plants and trees, and world hemispheres.

Corner Of Market & Seventh Streets. 1846. Entered ... 1845, by H.N. Burroughs ... Pennsylvania.
Note Later wall map version of the 1846 "New Map," with the 1846 map on verso. Both sides have the decorative borders not found on the pocket map issues. The western topography and political delineation has been completely redrawn in California, Utah, New Mexico and Texas, when compared to the 1846 1st edition. This map says entered in 1850, but we can find no record of an 1850 issue, only an 1851. However, the atlas map in the 1852 Universal Atlas follows this larger 1852 map (it is taken from the same plate) and it was in 1850 that Thomas Cowperthwait took over the atlas publication from Mitchell, and probably this map as well. So there may be an 1850 issue. Not seen by Wheat - Wheat 726 is the 1851 issue of this map as it appears as an inset (with an inset within it of the Gold Regions) in Mitchell's 1851 Reference and Distance Map of the U.S. (W.H. has a separate Pocket Map issue of this 1851 map without the Gold Region inset, the 1852 issue has towns added in the Gold Region that do not appear on the 1851 edition). The map still has the original table of "Emigrant Route from Missouri to Oregon" with distances. During restoration, when the linen was removed from the back of this map, we discovered the 1846 first edition printed on the verso. Apparently the printer reused some of the 1846 edition unbacked wall maps as stock for the 1852 wall map edition. The linen backing conveniently hid the old map.

Authors Burr, David H., 1803-1875
Full Title Map of the United States Of North America, By David H. Burr. Geographer to the House of Representatives of the U.S. . Entered ... 12th Jan. 1842, by David H. Burr ... District of Columbia.
Note This large four sheet wall map of the United States west to the 100th meridian must have been intended to accompany Burr's 1839 thirteen sheet American Atlas of postal wall maps (see our 0104.000), although there is little record of its publishing other than a listing in Phillips Maps of America, p.896. The American Atlas has a large map of the United States from coast to coast, but it lacks the detail of this wall map, which shows all most all of the postal roads, canals, and railroads that are delineated on the large scale individual state maps of the American Atlas. That detail makes this wall map one of the best large area road maps of the United States as a whole, of the period - more detailed than Tanner's Map of the United States or Mitchell's Reference and Distance Map of the United States. Burr likely published it as an addendum to the American Atlas to give a larger overview of the road system of the entire United States. Ristow (p.106) mentions that Burr published an edition of the American Atlas in 1842, so it is likely that this map was added to the set then. We are presuming that John Arrowsmith was the publisher and printer because of the similarity of style between this wall map and the American Atlas which he published for Burr, but his name does not appear on the map. There is no key or legend, only a scale of miles, and only two classes of roads are shown, primary and secondary, compared to four classes of roads shown on the American Atlas state maps. In the lower right corner is an untitled inset map of North and South America that is a slighly simplified version of part of John Arrowsmith's Map of the World on Mercators Projection, 1844 (see our 4613.002), further evidence of the John Arrowsmith involvement in publishing this wall map.

Authors Carleton, Osgood
Full Title A New Map of the United States, of America Including part of Louisiana. Drawn from the latest Authorities. Revised and corrected by Osgood Carleton Esq. Teacher of Mathematics, Boston. Boston, Published and Sold by John Sullivan, Junr. 1806.
Note Osgood Carleton first published a map of the United States in 1791. Another edition appeared in 1797, and then this edition in 1806. This issue is a major redrawing of the 1791 and 1797 maps, and it borrows heavily from Arrowsmith's Map of the United States, 1802 (see our list no. 5699.009, from Thompson's Alcedo Atlas, our 5699.000) especially in the west. But Carleton uses other sources as well, including Bradley's postal map. There was another issue of this map, undated, and updated to some unknown period, perhaps after 1810 or even later (Chris Lane, Philadelphia Print Shop).

King, James Duthie, J.L. White. (inset) Map Of The World on Mercator's Projection ...
Note Entered in 1856 and first issued in 1857. With an inset map of the World, and views of the U.S. Capital and state symbols around an eagle, tables of Distances and Statistics from the Census of 1850. Compared to the 1859 edition (our 4012.000) Colona, Jefferson, and Shoshone are added as proposed states in the west, one of the only maps we have seen to show all three. Also, the imprint of Johnson and Browning, Richmond Virginia is very unusual and probably one of the last north south publishing collaborations on the eve of the Civil War. There is Note and list of Authorities which reads in part "The part of this Map, between the Mississippi River and Pacific Ocean, was taken (with the consent of Capt. A.A. Humphreys) principally from a map compiled from the following authorities by Lieut. G.K. Warren, Topl Engrs...In the Office of Pacific Rail Road Surveys, War Department." The map referred to must be the 1855 edition (see our copy) of Warren's General Map for the Pacific Railroad Reports. The list of Authorities is almost identical to the list on that map. Also, the map details of the west used in Johnson's map follow the 1855 edition in scope. Karrow lists many issues of this map from 1857 to 1861, with the views varying in each issue, and with Colton taking over as publisher in 1860, as in this copy. See our late Colton edition of 1890 (our #5150). With black top and bottom roller. Full color by county or territory in the U.S. and by state in Central America. Edged in dark blue silk.
