Rare early plan of Philadelphia, which appeared in published by John Paxton and engraved by William Harrison of Philadelphia.

The map shows West at the top and provides a very different treatment of the City, when compared to predecessor plans such as Charles Varle's map of 1795. www.davidrumsey.com/luna/servlet/detail/RUMSEY~8~1~205~20052:To-The-Citizens-Of-Philadelphia-Thi .

The map shows the newly laid out streets that reflect the expansion of Philadelphia in the early 1800s, both to the North and the South, although unlike the Varle, there are no streets laid out west of the Schuylkill River.

A number of early buildings are shown.
