Title

“Georgia.” W. Barker, sc. Published in Matthew Carey’s American Pocket Atlas, 1801.

Description

This atlas consisted of 19 maps: an overall U.S., the Northwest Territory, and 17 separate states. The first edition of this work appeared in 1796. Given the format of this portable atlas, its maps were smaller and contained fewer features. In the case of Georgia there is no attempt to show the location of the counties, which was a feature of most of the other atlas of this period.

Date
