1. By Edmund Thompson, Terra Nova Press, 1995, (7" x 10.5"). Reprint of this interesting, scholarly work that is extremely rare in the original edition. As the publisher of this reprint states, "There are few great America carto-bibliographies and Thompson's Maps of Connecticut is one of them. Unfortunately, this insightful work is almost unknown because of its extreme scarcity!" Two volumes in one. Vol.1 includes maps before the year 1800; Vol. 2 includes maps for the years 1801-1860. 177 pp, illustrated. Hardbound in dark blue buckram.

2) A list of 200-plus maps that remain, "…an analytical, interesting view on the mapping of one of the earliest Europeanized parts of our country." Phillips, P. Lee, 1896. Reprinted 1995. (6.3 x 9.3"). 8vo. 85 pages. Original hardbound with beige cloth.

3) First published in 1918 as "A List of Atlases and Maps Applicable to the World War", this book is a compendium of American and foreign atlases compiled by the Chief of the Division of Maps at the Library of Congress.
