Product Description

KENTUCKY - 1828

 

 

 

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.    

 

This striking map of the state comes from Anthony Finley's General Atlas, published in 1828. This hand colored map shows counties, towns, roads, rivers, mountains and other geographical features. A number of counties have not yet been established.

Not much is known about Finley, but it is known that he produced atlases as early as 1818 and employed talented Philadelphia engravers such as H. S. Tanner, J. Vallance, and J. Thackara. Their work is considered to have been remarkable for their distinctiveness and elegance.

The period 1820 to 1840 is considered the Golden Age of American cartography. During this period copper plate engraving accompanied by hand coloring reached its zenith.

The original map is 11" x 9" but this reprint was slightly modified to accommodate our archival page protectors.
