    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.
