Map of the Adirondack Wilderness

We are excited to offer this beautiful, rare, large, lithograph folding map of the Adirondack Mountains in New York. It features original color, with original booklet covers attached. This map shows towns, villages, lakes, rivers, mountains, railroads, wagon roads, steamboat routes, proposed roads, and telegraph offices, all surrounded by a decorative border. Seneca Ray Stoddard was a photographer, naturalist, a writer, a poet, an artist, and a cartographer. His writings and photographs helped to popularize the Adirondacks. He was best known for his guidebook, The Adirondacks: Illustrated, published in 1873, revised and reprinted through 1914, and the first tourist map of the Adirondacks, published in 1874. The map has folds but we are storing it flat, which should help it flatten nicely for framing.

Reproductions from
Mills' Atlas of South Carolina
The 1825 publication of Robert Mills’ Atlas of the State of South Carolina marked an American cartographic first; it is the first systematic atlas of any state in the Union. Remarkably, no other state atlas of South Carolina was published for the next century and a half. The atlas has been reproduced more than once, and our maps are likely from a 1979 reproduction of the atlas.
