South Carolina, Samuel Lewis 1808 An engraved small early map of South Carolina by Samuel Lewis engraved by D. Fairman circa 1808 probably re-drawn by Lewis from and earlier map from: A New and Elegant General Atlas by Arrowsmith and Lewis. This is an uncolored map of the state of South Carolina as it appeared to contemporaries at the beginning of the 19th century. The European maps from this atlas are the work of Aaron Arrowsmith (1750-1833), an Englishman who was the foremost cartographer of his period, and the American maps were chiefly derived from work by the American Samuel Lewis. Counties, towns, rivers and roads are noted.
