3. Maps of Maine, 1820-1833


Maps of Maine are found in many American atlases of the early nineteenth century, including works by Henry C. Carey and Isaac Lea, Fielding Lucas, Jr., Anthony Finley, David H. Burr, Jeremiah Greenleaf, and Samuel G. Goodrich. Henry C. Carey and Isaac Lea were the son and son-in law of Mathew Carey (see map 5) and carried on the business after his retirement. In 1822, they created a U.S. atlas in which an historical narrative surrounded each map [map 12]; French and German publishers later imitated their work [13].
