Shortly after the turn of the century, Samuel Lewis joined with Aaron Arrowsmith (an English map publisher) to produce this rare atlas. The title page states the maps are "intended to accompany the new improved edition of Morse's Geography…" Published by Thomas & Andrews, this early map shows the state with an inset "Western Part of Maryland Continued" at left. All towns and villages, counties and extensive watershed are detailed. This uncommon issue was drawn by Samuel Lewis and engraved by Arrowsmith. With Xerox copy of the title page.

References: cf Wheat & Brun #514.

Condition: B+

Generally very good but with a stain at lower left. Light impression.
