Book Description HC Carey and I Lea, Philadelphia (Chestnut Street), 1822. Good due to minimal staining in vicinity of Long Island Sound (colored are of map unaffected) with mild rippling of paper. A piece of letterpress text has been torn out of the lower left corner of the map, and 5 sentences under "Manufactures and Co mmerce" are missing the left edge (vast majority of text here is legible). The original hand-colored image is clear and bright, with the surrounding letterpress text detailing aspects of population, climate, commerce, religion, government. There is a nice general historical sketch and lists of governors and "remarkable battles" in the letterpress. From the first edition of "A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas.". This is a nice map, but for the defects described. The map image i s 24.5x29.5cm; the entire image is 52.5x42cm. Seller Inventory # 1106
