After Tanner. "North America XIV: Florida".
London: SDUK, 1834. 16 1/8 x 12 1/8 (image). Engraving by J. & C. Walker. Original outline hand-coloring. Narrow margins at top and bottom, else very good condition.
A precise and cleanly drawn map of Florida by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK). This wonderful English enterprise was devoted to the spreading of up-to-date information and the enhancing of understanding. This crisply drawn map of Florida is an important early rendering of the state. It is based on the work of Tanner, an influential American cartographer. The careful detail and fine engraving show off the SDUK work at its best.
