    One of the Best Maps of the United States of America to Appear in the Early Nineteenth Century

    John Cary. A New Map of the United States of America, from the Latest Authorities. [London]: John Cary, 1806.
    First edition of this highly detailed map, taken from Cary's New Universal Atlas from 1808 (although the map comes from this atlas, it is dated two years before the atlas, as issued). Contemporary hand-coloring. Approximately 20.25 x 26.25 inches. Slightly toned, one vertical crease in the center (reinforced with paper on verso), small contemporary number sticker on verso. An excellent example of this beautiful map.

    More Information:

    John Cary (1754-1835) was one of the finest and most prolific English cartographers of the nineteenth century. He was known for the quality and detail of his work (clearly shown in this map) as well as his prodigious output (no less than one thousand publications). He also became the foremost globemaker of his day.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
