A precisely engraved map by Thomas G. Bradford, a Boston map publisher. This map was first issued in the 1838 edition of Bradford's atlas, but this example appeared in Samuel Goodrich's atlas from 1841. The map shows Vermont, depicting the terrain of the state with considerable detail, including rivers, towns, counties, and some sense of the Green Mountains. The maps by Bradford are fine examples of the developing American cartographic industry and they are among the scarcest of state maps.
