Engraving with full period colour. Backed on linen. Split at fold expertly repaired. Occasional creases. Fascinating and informative map of Connecticut from one of the most innovative American atlases of the 19th century Carey & Lea's atlas established a style that was widely admired, especially in Europe: placing a fully coloured map as the centerpiece of the page and surrounding it with geographical and historical facts. The texts were well written and intriguing. The immense transformation of continental America: the vast migration, settlement and industrialization really began at about this time, not long after the War of 1812, when expansion and opportunity were American by-words. It was at this time that American atlases began to need semi-annual revisions because the country had changed so rapidly. In fact, the Carey & Lea gazetteer style, most reminiscent of Herman Moll really, was too time consuming for the firms that published atlases of America as the century progressed.
