Historical Context: The most persistent atlas map of antebellum Maine was A New Map of Maine, which appeared in twenty-eight variants between 1833 and 1860: a remarkable number. Henry Schenck Tanner, a prominent Philadelphia map publisher, created it for his [New] Universal Atlas, published in sections from 1833, then as a single work from 1836.
