This 29-page paper is the written copy of a lecture given by Edmund Thompson to members of the Connecticut Historical Society at their November 1941 meeting. The lecture was developed during Thompson's research for two books on the cartography of Connecticut, Maps of Connecticut Before the Year 1800 and Maps of Connecticut for the Years of Industrial Revolution. Both of Thompson's books are considered classics for their "scholarly and thorough research," also exemplified in this lecture. Printed in May 1959 at the Blue Anchor Press in Boston, Massachusetts. Bound in blue paper wrappers with a printed label on front cover.


Condition: A
