Book Description Philadelphia, 1823. Condition: Very good condition. Fine original hand colored map of Ohio from the first edition of Carey and Lea's 'A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas, being a Guide to the History of North and South America, and the West Indies . to the Year 1822', the best atlas of nineteenth century America. With many counties shown, and a reference to the suffering of the citizens of Ohio in the War of 1812, in which Perry defeated the British at Lake Erie, and famously declared "We have met the enemy and they are ours". This battle, fought only 10 years prior to the making of the map, gave the United States control over Lake Erie; the forts are named here. With text on two sides and below map, pertaining to topography, climate, lands, towns & ports, government and history. This map, according to History Detectives (Season 6, Episode 4: Lincoln Forgery) was evidently part of an Abraham Lincoln memorabilia scam in which a forger named Harry Sickles worked with Eugene Field II to pass off items in Field's collection as Lincoln items. Sickles and Field managed to convince William P. Brown, the still living coachman of Abraham Lincoln, that they wanted his signature on the verso of their items. Brown's signature, and the notary's signature are genuine; the text referring to the map being given by Mrs. Lincoln to Brown in 1866 was added by the forger. This is the handwritten note on the verso: "This is from the collection of old books, papers, maps, etc presented to her coachman, Wm. P Brown, by Mrs. Lincoln in 1866. (Signed) Wm P Brown. The signatures are genuine. (Signed) Frank E. Thatcher". There is a blue notary stamp, (Muskegon County, Mich. 1933) and a circular blind stamp. Howe's C133. Image size: 20 3/4 x 16 1/2" on paper 22 1/4 x 17 1/2". Seller Inventory # 15966
