- The world
This double-hemisphere world map may be the work of a Quaker girl from Plainfield, Vermont, and is backed on an 1829 newspaper published near Montpelier. A young Thankful Vincent decorated her world map with simple garlands of vines and flowers around the title and her name. She also included embroidery along the margins of the map, at the top center, and in each corner. This schoolgirl map is a charming example of a young student’s combined geography, penmanship and needlework project.
