1854 US Coast Survey Reconnaissance of Smith’s or Blunt Island and Anacapa Island, Whistler, 1854. Two very handsome engraved and hand colored maps of Smith’s Island, Washington State and Anacapa Islands, in the Santa Barbara Channel. These are very important maps, being the first known example of the engraving work of James Abbott MacNeill Whistler, who would go on to have a career as one of America's most famous 19th Century Artists. Special Note: Whistler, one of the most influential figures in the 19th-century art world, learned etching while employed in the cartographic section of the U.S. Coast Survey. One of the few known works completed by Whistler during his brief federal service, Sketch of Anacapa Island, exemplifies Whistler's need to add his personal touch to official charts and after he completed this etching in the approved style, he thought it looked dull. Therefore, he added two flocks of gulls sailing gracefully over the rocky headland of Anacapa Island. Condition: Excellent, small verticalfold throughout on right side, horizontal fold bottom, wide margins.
