“INDIANA” Massachusetts: Thomas Gamaliel Bradford, c. 1838 (dated lower margin). Reference Phillips Atlases #1381. (Image: 14 3/8 x 11 1/8‘’)
Very fine & beautifully engraved map with original hand-coloring. Engraved by G. W. Boynton (owner of an engraving company in Boston 1830’s - 40’s). From An Illustrated Atlas, Geographical, Statistical and Historical of the United States and Adjacent Countries by T. G. Bradford.
This handsome map depicts Indiana with the counties named and in contrasting pastel colors. Topographical features are shown with various land routes and water routes (including several canals and railroads) identified. Most cities, towns, and an Indian Village (Newton County) are located. A very interesting and very scarce view of the region as it existed in the early 19th century.
