About this Item

15 5/8" x 14 1/2," board 16 1/4" x 15" Single sheet. Map of Pencader, New Castle County, Delaware with inset maps of Glasgow, St. Georges, and Christiana. Scale 1 1/4 inches to the mile, 40 rods to the inch, and 30 rods to the inch respectively. The Christiana inset map has no scale. Contains a directory of St. Georges and Christiana businesses. This map has been removed from a incomplete copy of Beers' 1868 Atlas of the State of Delaware (page 27), which contains "actual surveys by and under the direction of D.G. Beers." Daniel G. Beers came from a family of atlas publishers. He and his brother Silas operated in Philadelphia, the center of atlas publication in the United States, until he moved to New York City in 1868. Beers and his family produced detailed maps of many Northeastern states, cities, and counties until the 1880s, when the United States began to systematize mapping practices, and mapmaking moved out of private publication (Mano, Jo Margaret). Engraved by Worley & Bracher of Philadelphia and printed by Fred Bourquin. All maps in color. Small stain along bottom. Bookseller Inventory # 93356
