L. Hebert. "Western Hemisphere".
Drawn by L. Hebert under the direction of Pinkerton. From John Pinkerton's Modern Atlas. Philadelphia: Thomas Dobson & Co., 1818. 20 x 20. Engraving by Samuel Neele. Full original color. Excellent condition.
Another in the line of superbly produced British maps from the beginning of the nineteenth century. Originally published in London by Cadell & Davis in 1812, the Atlas was republished by Dobson for the American market. Because of its large size, this map contains particularly impressive detail, all very finely engraved and enhanced with light pastel wash color. The map is virtually identical to work engraved by Neele for John Thomson of Edinburgh.
