Eddy, John H.
The State of New York with part of the adjacent States. By John H. Eddy, Geographer, New York 1818. Engraved by Tanner, Vallance, Kearny & Co. Philadelphia. Printed by Saml. Maverick N. York. New York Published By James Eastburn & Co. At The Literary Rooms In Broadway.
This map was published after Eddy's death (see biography of Eddy in American Monthly Magazine and Critical Review, May, 1818). Eddy was deaf, and died young at 35, on December 22, 1817. He also published a map of the county 30 miles around New York City (circular) in 1811 (see our copy), and a map of the western part of New York State for the canal commissioners in 1811. An extraordinary map maker about whom little has been known. He planned an American Atlas and a Map of the State of New Jersey, both abandoned after his death (perhaps Tanner's American Atlas was somehow related to Eddy's proposed Atlas). Tanner lists the three New York maps as sources for his New York Map in his American Atlas and has only the highest praise for Eddy. This New York State map is remarkable for its clarity of execution and detail. New York state counties and other states with outline color. Maps is dissected into 16 sheets, and lays in a new burgundy cloth folding case 29x25 with "State Of New York J.H. Eddy 1818" stamped in gilt on the spine.
