Connecticut from the Best Authorities, Dolittle, 1795 - A wonderful hand colored copper engraved map showing Mathew Carey's map of Connecticut, engraved by Amos Doolittle and published in Carey's American Atlas of Guthries Geography Improved in 1795. The towns and township lines are based on William Blodget's seminal map of 1791, but the coastal and river information derives from other sources. This second edition of the map (offered here) can be distinguished from the exceptionally rare separately issued first state by the addition of 3 trees east of the Hudson River in Greenwich County, near the disputed oblong portion of the western border with New York. An essential map for Connecticut collectors.
Special Note: Amos Doolittle was a famous and prolific Connecticut engraver whose work appeared for nearly 40 years and is highly collected. Carey's American Atlas was the first atlas published in the United States, compiling a number of excellent maps from indigenous sources in the first compilation of American maps. This map was engraved by Amos Doolittle in New Haven and bears his name, on a scale of 7.5 miles to one inch.
Condition: Very good, small top margin, top right margin
missing ear, some light
aging color on margin edges.
