First edition and first state of this influential map of the state with five counties and great detail of the roads, settlements, mills and taverns. A note on the map states "The White Hills appear many leagues off at sea like white clouds just rising above the horizon." Two of the most influential names in American cartography were Samuel Lewis and Mathew Carey. Samuel Lewis was a celebrated draftsman and cartographer who learned his trade from the prominent English cartographer Aaron Arrowsmith.
