A. Geographical, Statistical, and Historical Map of Rhode Island, (8.4 x 11.4"). This map was beautifully drawn by F. Lucas and finely engraved by J. Yeager. It shows the state with a population of only 83,000 as compared to today's number of over one million. Five counties are named, and there is an adequate network of wagon roads. Newport, Little Rest, Bristol, Warren, and Providence are shown in a block layout. All of Block Island is shown to the south. Towns and settlements include Tower Hill, Charlestown, East Greenwich, and Pocasset. Among details are a powder mill, the Great Swamp, Perry's Iron Works, as well as turnpikes headed to Norwich, Connecticut, and Pawcatuck. Condition: There is a centerfold separation that extends 6" into the image partially closed on verso with old paper and light toning along the centerfold. (B)

County development is current for 1822 with the recent organization of Erie, Monroe, and Livingston counties.
