Samuel Lewis. "Rhode Island." From A New and Elegant General Atlas by Aaron Arrowsmith and Samuel Lewis.
Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Petersburg and Norfolk, 1804. 9 3/4 x 8. Engraving by Lawson. Minor spotting throughout. Otherwise, very good condition.
The maps from this atlas were the work of Aaron Arrowsmith, one of the foremost cartographers of his era, and Samuel Lewis, one of the leaders in the nascent American cartographic field. This map of Rhode Island is a fine example of Lewis' output. Detail of the settlement in the state, along with topographical information is neatly portrayed. Roads and counties are also shown. A fine example of some of the best American cartography of the period.
