Map of The Tennassee (sic) Government formerly Part of North Carolina taken Chiefly from Surveys by Genl. D. Smith & others. J.T. Scott sculp.

by Smith, D.; Mathew Carey

Condition: Very Good


[Philadelphia]: [Mathew Carey]. Very Good. [1795]. A detailed map of Tennessee, complete with public roads, mountain ranges, rivers, forts, "Indian towns" and "Indian Boundaries." Map also contains indications of land quality, soil fertility, and width of rivers in yards. Published in "General Atlas for Carey's Edition of Guthrie's Geography Improved" in 1795. "Engraved for Carey's American Edition of Guthrie's Geography Improved" on top margin; map measures 23 ¼" x 14 ¼" (including margins); was at one time folded twice and is reinforced with archival tape at folds and on bottom edge. In very good condition with light toning and foxing to margins and at folds, minor chipping to bottom edge. This map was used again in the 1796 edition of Carey's General Atlas, but was titled "Tennassee State" instead of "Tennassee Government" (David Rumsey Map Collection). This map was compiled from the surveys of Daniel Smith (1748-1818), a prominent historical figure of Tennessee. Smith was a surveyor, and was appointed the first Secretary of the Southwest Territory in 1790 (soon after to become Tennessee), helped to write the state's Constitution and was also a U.S. Senator. A historically important map, one that is essential for any Tennessee collector. .
