Product Description

INDIANA 1840

 

 

 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 a mylar 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 map was engraved by Jeremiah Greenleaf of Vermont and taken from Greenleaf's A New Universal Atlas; Comprising Separate maps of All the Principal Empires, Kingdoms, & States Throughout the World and Forming a Distinct Atlas of the United States...A New Edition Revised and Corrected to the Present Time printed in Brattleboro, Vermont in 1840 by G. R. French. The original size of this map was 12 5/8" x 10 3/4" but this reprint was slightly modified to accommodate our archival page protectors.

Greenleaf was born in 1791 and died in 1864.

Greenleaf obtained the publishing rights to the New Universal Atlas from David Burr

( 1803 - 1875 ) who published several atlases between 1830 and 1850.

Burr was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1803 and moved to Kingsboro, New York while still in his teens. His interest in law and his association with Governor Clinton gave him responsibilities as the head of one of the three surveying parties who surveyed the State of New York in 1825.

Burr put out his first Atlas of the State of New York in 1830 and was planning on publishing a New Universal Atlas; Comprising Separate maps of All the Principal Empires, Kingdoms & States Throughout the World. And Forming a Distinct Atlas of the United States Carefully Compiled from the Best Authorities Extant by David H. Burr when he accepted the position of topographer for the United States Post Office Department. His maps were engraved by Thomas Illman and Edward Pillbrow and they took over the responsibility for finishing the publication . The atlas was published in 1835 by D. S. Stone of New York City.

Greenleaf’s atlas came out in 1840; it was probably a revision of David H. Burr’s 1836 Universal Atlas.
