Samuel Lewis. “North America.” From A New and Elegant General Atlas.
Boston: Thomas & Andrews, 1812. From A New and Elegant General Atlas by Aaron Arrowsmith and Samuel Lewis. 9 3/4 x 8. Engraving. Full margins. Very good condition.
An excellent map from an early American atlas. The maps were the works of Aaron Arrowsmith, one of the foremost cartographers of his era, and Samuel Lewis, one of the leaders in the nascent American cartographic field. Detail of the early settlement in the region, along with topographical information is neatly portrayed. A fine example of some of the best American cartography of the period.
