Condition: See description


Philadelphia (Chestnut Street), 1822: HC Carey and I Lea, 1822. VG due to some minimal dampstaining most evident left upper corner, and minimally crossing neatline. The color portion of the map shows no significant visual effects from the stains. The original hand-colored image is clear and bright, with the surrounding letterpre ss text detailing aspects of population, climate, commerce, religion, government. There is a nice general historical sketch (in a separate page of original text, included here-- "Appendix to No. 18") in the letterpress. From the first edition "A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas...", which was also the first American atlas with letterpress printing on the map. This is a nice map, but for the defects described. The map image is 45x31cm; the entire image is 52.5x42cm..
