This early nineteenth century map is based on Osgood Carleton's important map of the region and published by Jedidiah Morse, one of the founders of American cartography. It provides early information on the region, which at the time was a part of Massachusetts, and is divided into five counties. A line of mountains mark the boundary between Maine and Canada. This is the second map of Maine that Morse used in his important geography, engraved by Enoch G. Gridley.
