Carte Geographique, Statistique et Historique Du New-Jersey

First Map of New Jersey Printed in France

One of the earliest obtainable maps of the State of New Jersey published outside of the United States.

The map appeared in Buchon's edition of Carey & Lea's Atlas, which was highly prized not only for its cartographic information but the marvelous information about each of the states and territories included.

The atlas was issued in 6 editions in English, French & German between 1822 and 1827. The French edition is a completely revised map, with better engraving quality than the original Philadelphia edition.

Jean Alexandre Buchon (1791-1849) was a French scholar and historian. Born as the French Revolution raged, Buchon was dedicated to recovering France’s history in order to help the country heal and grow. He gathered French stories and published them as part of Collection des chroniques nationales franciases ecrites en langue vulgaire, du XIe au XVIe siècle (4 vols, 1824-1829). He also compiled and published an exploration collection and several histories, particularly about medieval France.

For geography, his most important contribution was publication of the French edition of Carey & Lea’s American Atlas in 1825. Each page of the atlas includes highly detailed text about the state or territory depicted, as well as a map of the area. The French edition is generally considered in high regard as compared to other editions, as it has quality paper and superior engraving.
