VI. Maps of Maine 1834-1852

Maine was represented on a wide variety of maps between 1834 and 1852. Vermont-native Lewis Robinson produced a variety of wall maps which he actively marketed throughout New England via peddlers; all, including his map of Maine, are now very rare [map 28]. Mainer William Anson also made maps for the local market, with wall maps that could also be sold as pocket maps; he issued seven variants of his map of Maine between 1837 and 1853 [30]. Of course, the state continued to be shown, often in a rather undistinguished manner, in atlases [29]. Finally, the state began to appear on dedicated maps in a variety of forms intended for grade-schoolers [31-33]. (Map 33 is in the central floor case.)
