New York: David H. Burr, 1834. 12 1/2 x 10 1/4. Engraving. Full original color. Chips and discoloring in upper corners of margin. Else, very good condition.
An excellent map of Europe by David H. Burr, one of the most important American cartographers of the first part of the nineteenth century. Having studied under Simeon DeWitt, Burr produced the second state atlas issued in the United States, of New York in 1829. He was then appointed to be geographer for the U.S. Post Office and later geographer to the House of Representatives. A careful geographer, Burr's maps are scarce and quite desirable.
