Note Smith considered this to be "the most successful of our maps" and it is indeed a beautiful map and a fine example of early lithography printed by P.S. Duval. Although copyrighted by Robert Pearsal Smith, Ristow states that this map was considered by Smith father, John Jay Smith, to be his own work. There is a view of Girard College and another of Laurel Hill Cemetery in the lower corners of the map engraved by A. Kollner, one of Philadelphia earliest lithographic artists. This copy is from the Kollner collection of Nicholas Biddle Wainwright, who wrote the standard book on Philadelphia lithography and also the authoritative book on Kollner. Map is folded into burgundy leather covers 14x8.5 with "Sidney's Map Of Ten Miles Around Philadelphia" in gilt.

Full Title Map of the Centre Oil Region From Oil City To Parkers Landing by Henry E. Wrigley. Publishing Rooms, Titusville, Pa., June 27th, 1871 ... Henry E. Wrigley, Civil Engineer, Office, 21 Spring Street, Publishing Rooms, 7 And 12 Smith & Wood Block, Titusville, Pa. Entered ... 1871 by Henry E. Wrigley ... Washington, D.C.
Note An unusual very large scale map of the center oil region (the largest scale we have seen) made by the photographic process. Privately produced, this map was printed during the hiatus between the First Geological Survey of Pennsylvania ending in 1858, (see our (No. 4120) Henry Darwin Rogers map) and the beginning of the Second Geological Survey in 1874. Henry Wrigley was a civil engineer active in the oil region who self published a series of five oil region maps by the photographic process, on the map he states "By this means (photography) every one can be kept constantly advised of the progress of all developments and possess the information desired at the time he most needs it." Wrigley goes on to say that the most active sections of the map will be updated every three months with "fresh plates." Subscribers will receive the updated sections as they are issued. "As the expense of publishing the work by photographing is very great, and as the work is local, the cost of the maps will be necessarily much greater than heretofore." Each of the large scale maps was $100, and $150 if the buyer wanted the updates - a huge amount in those times, but then this was probably only purchased by those who gambled in the high stakes game of oil development. Photography was used in the Civil War for maps (see our examples) but this is the only instance of its use in the commercial map trade that we have seen. Phillips lists three later Wrigley maps that were lithographed, indicated that this unusual scheme was not long lived. Map is without color. Dissected in 28 sections. Folds into brown leather end sheets 34x26 with "Centre Oil Region From Oil City To Parker's Landing, By Henry E. Wrigley, Civil Engineer, Titusville, Pa.", map lies in a new brown cloth folding case with "Map Of The Centre Oil Region Henry E. Wrigley 1871" stamped in gold on the spine.
