State Atlas
Authors Greenleaf, Moses, 1777-1834
Full Title (Covers to) Atlas accompanying Greenleaf's map and statistical survey of Maine ... Portland -- Shirley & Hyde Publishers, (1829)
Note The third U.S. state atlas, after Mill's North Carolina and Burr's New York State. Contains six maps, one of which is a sheet of Geologic sections, and a sheet of Meteorological Diagrams. The maps are engraved by William Chapin of New York. The atlas accompanied Greenleaf's Survey of the State of Maine and his Map of Maine, all published together in 1829. The first four maps relate to the Northeastern Boundary dispute and are the only maps published in Maine that dealt with the boundary question. The fifth and sixth maps relate to grants, patterns of settlement, population, etc. The final plate gives Meteorological diagrams with information derived from Greenleaf's own observations of climate. In original half leather, marbled paper covered boards with printed title and index label. This copy has notes from Portland Bookseller Francis O'Brien written in 1954 and stating that "This copy is from the noted Maine collection of Janus G. Elder of Lewiston, Maine ... See tribute to him in the preface to Williamson's Bibliography of Maine."

Full Title Lay's Map of the United States. Compiled from the Latest and best Authorities and Actual Surveys By Amos Lay, Geographer and Map Publisher New York 1832. Engraved by O.H. & D.L. Throop & Wm. Chapin, New York. O.H. Throop, del. Entered ... May 8th 1827 By Amos Lay ... New York. (inset) Florida.
Note Changes from the 1828 edition include: the Michigan Peninsula has been completely redrawn (probably following Tanner's 1832 Map of the United States, our #4406), the Statistical Tables have been filled in for 1830, and Texas is extensively altered adding much of the information from the Steven Austin Map of Texas of 1830, although incorrectly placing Galveston at the mouth of the Trinity River. Lay's showing of Texas in this edition, while not correct in every respect, is the best detailed depiction of Texas on any large map of the United States until Tanner's 1836 edition of his Map of the United States. With black top and bottom rollers, and light yellow cloth edging. Map is unvarnished and has blue outline color by state.
