Boston: Thomas & Andrew, 1796. unbound. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 7.25" x 10". This elegant map of the World was issued in Jedidiah Morse's "The American Universal Geography" published in 1796. It depicts the world on Mercator's Projection and notes important places, rivers, countries, islands, oceans, and other topographic features. Identifies 'Owhyhee, where C. Cook was killed, 1779'. The maps in Morse's Geography were considered to be among the best example of early American map making. The map is in good condition with overall age toning and offsetting. Some stains and foxing. Minor wear and toning along original fold lines. Tiny hole near the Philippines. Jedidiah Morse (1761 - 1826) was one of the most influential of the early American cartographers. His textbooks became a staple for students in the United States, earning him the informal title, "father of American Geography". This is a beautiful example of his important work.
