Product Description

INDIANA 1822

 

 

 Reprinted 2001 by Michiana History Publications

 

This inexpensive reprint is  a best seller at our genealogy conferences.

Lithographed on 80 pound archival stock, and protected by an archival polypropylene sleeve,  this 11" x 14" reproduction makes  a great gift for friends and family or can be  an unusual door prize at family reunions or genealogy meetings.     One local historical society even framed all of our reprints and displays them on their wall.

 

The back of each map provides information about the map and its publisher as well as historical information about the state at the time of the map's publication.

 This hand colored engraving was published by Henry Charles Carey and Isaac Lea in1822. It was taken from their A Complete Historical, Chronological and Geographical American Atlas published in Philadelphia. The original map is 16 5/8" x 20 3/4" and contains text as well as the map.

The sheets of this atlas covered North America, Central America, South America and the West Indies. The map was surrounded by text which described the boundaries, climate, rivers, chief towns and a historical "sketch" of each state or area.

Fielding Lucas, Jr., an important Baltimore cartographer, drew the map and J. H. Young and Delleker engraved it.

Indiana became a state in April 1816. The earliest settlement came from the south, along the Ohio river, so the detail in the southern part of the state is more detailed and shows towns and roads.

In the upper quarter of the map is a large section of land that was reserved for Indians. Below that are large Wabash and Delaware counties with smaller counties all along the southern and eastern portions of the state.

The text was not included in this reproduction and the map was slightly modified in size to accommodate our archival page protectors.
