This rare wood-engraved map of Vermont is surrounded by an elaborate decorative border of the 24 state seals that were in existence at the time. Arkansas was next in line to achieve statehood in 1836 and the map reports population data as of the 1830 census, putting the date of this map somewhere in between. The map displays basic detail of towns, cities and counties as well as rivers, lakes and mountain ranges. There is a brief note to the right of the map that describes elections, trade and geography. The state seal of Maryland at lower right is not labeled. This unusual map was bound into an annual run of the "Philadelphia Mirror" from July 1836 to July 1837 (56 issues).


Condition: A

The map is clean and bright with a printer's crease at upper right and some very minor extraneous creasing.

Estimate: $275 - $350

Sold for: $200
