Marvelous and highly detailed map, from Morse's important Atlas of North America, the first cerographic atlas. Shows towns, roads, rivers, etc. Includes a plan of Washington, Georgetown, etc.
Morse & Breese's North American Atlas was a landmark in American Cartography, being the first atlas to employ the cerographic printing process, which would revolutionize the map trade. The Morse family and this process are the subject of David Woodward's The All American Map. The maps were first printed in a series of inserts which appeared in the New York Post, and then later as a separate atlas.
An essential map for American Map collectors, illustrating an important change in the history of printed maps and the only truly American cartographic publishing innovation.
