“SOUTH CAROLINA.” Thomas Gamaliel Bradford. Boston: Weeks, Jordan and Co., c. 1838 (dated lower margin). (Image: 11 3/8 x 14’’)
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 exceptionally handsome map depicts South Carolina with the counties named and in outline color. Topographical features are shown with various land routes, water routes, cities towns, islands, and Post Offices identified.
The Indian Mound (Chester County) and Caruth’s (sic) Armory (gun foundry built by Adam Carruth in 1812 om Greenville County) are located. A very interesting and very scarce view of the state as it existed in the 1830’s!
