Note
Wheat and Brun show a 1791 map of different title and smaller size that may have been the precursor of this 1811 map - both are derived from Howell's large map of Pennsylvania, first issued in 1792. This 1811 copy is the first edition in this format, with other editions in 1816 and 1817. Decorative vignettes surround the dedication in the upper right and the title in the lower right. In the lower left corner there is a view of the "Schuylkill permanent Bridge." Colored in outline, backed on thin linen and folded into red half leather marbled covered boards 15x10.

Map of America by A. Arrowsmith. Philadelphia, Published by Kimber and Conrad, and Johnson and Warner. J.H. Seymour, sculp.
Note
Very rare U.S. edition of Arrowsmith's America. The map has been totally reengraved by J.H. Seymour of Philadelphia using the latest Arrowsmith edition, 1811, as the base. Changes include the delineation of Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Northwest Territory, Mississippi Territory and the delineation of U.S. claims for the Western and Southern Boundary of the Louisiana Territory. The upper Mississippi River has been redrawn, as has the Michigan Peninsula (fatter), and the Great Lakes. No changes found (yet) in the Western U.S. This map is extremely scarce, with no mention of it in any of the standard map references, including Stevens and Tree. It is only listed in Shaw/Shoemaker. Conrad, the publisher of this map, was related to Arrowsmith through the Arrowsmith and Lewis Atlas. With black top and bottom rollers and brown linen edging. Outline color by country.
