Item Information

Title:
Vermont from actual survey
Description:
Among the maps Mathew Carey included in his atlases was one of Vermont, which joined the nation as the fourteenth state in 1791. Although his 1796 General Atlas was a world atlas, it included maps of the individual states and territories within the growing United States. This map of Vermont, delineated by Amos Doolittle, features the state’s mountains and towns, while the cartouche in the bottom right pays tribute to its forests. Carey’s General Atlas was almost twice the size of his Pocket Atlas and includes double the number of maps.
