BEST INFO SOURCE : RISTOW'S AMERICAN MAPS AND MAPMAKERS IS BEST ON THE SERIES. NONE WAS FOUND ON THIS EDITION OF THE MAP.
DESCRIPTION : THIS IS STATE 1 OF THE SECOND EDITION OF A H.S. TANNER MAP BY A SIMILAR ENGLISH TITLE DONE IN 1833. THE ORIGINAL MAP WAS DONE TO MEET AN INCREASED DEMAND FOR ACCURATE MAPS THAT INCORPORATED THE RAPID IMPROVEMENTS MADE IN THE 1820-1840 PERIOD IN COMMUNICATIONS AND TRANSPORTATION IN THE UNITED STATES. THE ROAD SYSTEM WAS GREATLY EXPANDED AND CANAL AND RAILROAD BUILDING WERE UNDERWAY. THE MAP IN 1833 WAS FIRST ISSUED AS A SEPARATE THEN IN 1836 WAS INCLUDED IN H.S. TANNER'S A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS. THE FIRST EDITION WAS IN PUBLICATION IN VARIOUS STATES AND BY VARIOUS PUBLISHERS FROM 1836 TO 1859. IT WAS PRINTED FROM BOTH ENGRAVED COPPERPLATES AND, BEGINNING IN 1846, BY LITHOGRAPHY.

THE SECOND EDITION OF THE MAP, DESCRIBED HEREIN, WAS MAP # 89 IN MEYER'S HANDATLAS, AMSTERDAM, PARIS AND PHILADELPHIA: 1846. THE MAP IS SLIGHTLY LARGER THAN THE FIRST EDITION, SO THAT IT DOES NOT PROJECT THROUGH THE RIGHT AND LEFT LATITUDE BORDERS, AS DID THE ORIGINAL. IN ADDITION, THE ADDED SIZE PERMITTED A FEW MORE PLACE NAMES AND ROADS TO BE INSERTED IN PENNSYLVANIA THAN WERE IN EDITION 1. THE TITLE, EXPLANATORY MATERIAL AND TABLES AND THE IMPRINT ARE ALL IN GERMAN, BUT MOST OF THE MAP IS IN ENGLISH. A LARGER SCALE IS SHOWN IN THE INSET OF THE GERMAN VERSION AND IT IS RELOCATED TO THE BOTTOM OF THE INSET, UNDER THE TITLE. THE WIDTH NO LONGER TAPERS IN AS IT GOES NORTH. LONGITUDE IS FROM WASHINGTON, D.C. AND ALSO WEST FROM FERRO IN THE CANARY ISLANDS.

DATA IS FROM RISTOW, PHILLIPS AND FROM OBSERVATION OF THE MANY COPIES OF THIS MAP SERIES IN THE HUNTINGFIELD COLLECTION.

EDITION & STATE INFO : THIS MAP IS KNOWN IN AT LEAST TWO EDITIONS, EACH WITH SEVERAL STATES. THERE ARE SO MANY ISSUANCES AND STATES OF THE MAP THAT IT IS CERTAIN THAT WE HAVE NOT LISTED ALL OF THEM.

ED. 1 - STATE 1 - (1833) - IT WAS IN THE FIRST FOLIO RELEASED IN 1833 OF A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS, PHILADELPHIA: H.S. TANNER, AS MAP # 12. IT WAS ALSO SOLD AS A SEPARATE. SEE MAP # 333T5.

- STATE 2 - (1836) - THIS STATE IS THE SAME AS THE FIRST STATE EXCEPT THAT "1836" IS SUBSTITUTED IN THE LEFT BOTTOM MARGIN IMPRINT. THE MAP WAS IN THE 1836 EDITION OF THE SAME ATLAS. SEE MAP # 336T5.

- ANOTHER STATE - (1841) - THIS IS PROBABLY A REISSUE OF STATE 2 IN A GEOGRAPHICAL, HISTORICAL AND STATISTICAL VIEW OF THE CENTRAL OR MIDDLE UNITED STATES, PHILADELPHIA: H. S. TANNER, 1841, ON PAGE 295. WRITER HAS NOT SEEN THIS ISSUE AND THEREFORE CANNOT BE SURE OF ITS DISTINGUISHING FEATURES.

- ANOTHER STATE - (1841) - THIS STATE WAS IN THE SAME ATLAS AS THE OTHER 1841 STATE, PUBLISHED BY CAREY AND HART. WHETHER THE CAREY AND HART LEGEND REPLACES THAT OF H.S. TANNER IS UNKNOWN. THIS ISSUE HAS NOT BEEN SEEN BY THE WRITER.

- ANOTHER STATE - (1842-3) - THIS STATE WAS CONTAINED IN A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS..., PHILADELPHIA: CAREY AND HART AS MAP # 12. THE IMPRINT READS "ENTERED...CONGRESS". "PUBLISHED BY CAREY & HART" IS IN THE BOTTOM CENTER MARGIN AND THE ENGRAVER AND PAGE NUMBER ARE UNCHANGED. SEE MAP # 342T5.

- ANOTHER STATE - (1844) - THIS STATE IS LIKE THE 1842-3 STATE EXCEPT THAT THE PAGE # IS NOW "15". IT WAS CONTAINED IN THE 1844 CAREY & HART EDITION OF A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS. SEE MAP # 344T5.

- ANOTHER STATE - (1846) - PHILLIPS NOTES AN 1844 DATE IN THE INSET. IT WAS PUBLISHED IN TANNER'S A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS, PHILADELPHIA: S. AUGUSTUS MITCHELL. A COPY OF THIS STATE HAS NOT BEEN SEEN BY THE WRITER. SEE MAP # 346M5.

- ANOTHER STATE - (1846) - A DECORATIVE BORDER HAS BEEN ADDED. THIS MAP WAS REPRODUCED BY LITHOGRAPHY. THE MARGINAL WRITING WAS DROPPED EXCEPT FOR THE PAGE NUMBER "15". "ENTERED...1846 BY H. N. BURROUGHS..." IS PRINTED ON THE INSIDE BORDER STARTING EAST OF 1oW LONGITUDE. "PUBLISHED BY S. AUGUSTUS MITCHELL,/N.E. CORNER OF MARKET & 7TH STREETS PHILADA., 1846" IS SUBSTITUTED AFTER THE TITLE. SEE MAP # 346M6.

HAS BEEN ADDED IN THE LEFT BOTTOM MARGIN.

ED. 2 - STATE 1 - (1846) - THE TITLE IS CHANGED TO "NEUESTE KARTE VON MARYLAND UND DELAWARE MIT SEINEN CANAELEN, STRASSEN UND ENTFERNUNGEN DER HAUPTPUNKTE 1846." THE MAP IS 30 X 37 CM. "MEYER'S-HANDATLAS" IS IN THE LEFT TOP MARGIN AND "NO. 89" IS AT THE RIGHT TOP. THIS IS THE MAP DESCRIBED HEREIN.
