    Jedediah Hotchkiss Hand Drawn Colored Map. One page, 7.75" x 9.75", [Alleghany County, Virginia]; circa 1872. This ink and watercolor map was part of a bound report that included surveys and maps of a large parcel of land in Alleghany County, Virginia, and were prepared by Hotchkiss around that time. The map, number page 120, is attached to pages 121 and 122 of a manuscript bound report including other surveys.

    Hotchkiss (1828-1899) served as Stonewall Jackson's cartographer during the Civil War and later served under other Confederate generals, including doing work for General Robert E. Lee. After the war, Hotchkiss lived in Staunton, Virginia, and continued his topographical work.

    The map is accompanied by photographic prints of Hotchkiss and Stonewall Jackson, as well as background material on Hotchkiss' topographical work.

    Condition: The map is on onion paper and has paper residue along its left-hand edge, where it was once attached to a larger report. Small tear at the upper left.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
