Description:
In about 1810, Isaac Eddy established an engraving shop in Greenbush, Vermont. This was the beginning of an improbable yet very successful map, globe and illustrated book industry in rural Vermont over the next forty years. Eddy's best-known apprentice was Lewis Robinson, who achieved considerable success as a mapmaker. George White was another apprentice, although very little is known about him. While Eddy and Robinson are discussed in Ristow's American Maps and Mapmakers, there is no mention of White at all. His entire cartographic output was apparently confined to this map and a companion map of New Hampshire. The map -- a very small wall map issued with rollers -- has a basic, almost primitive feel. Perhaps this accounted for White's apparent lack of success as a mapmaker. An interesting and fairly scarce Vermont map from an unheralded member of the "Greenbush group."

Description:
[Washington, DC]: Published for the National Park and Planning Commission, 1933. Printed in green on lightweight linen. Overall very clean and bright with a few small, faint stains and a small loss of the stitched hem at lower right. There are small pin holes in the corners of the handkerchief. About 26 x 25." This charming handkerchief map of the District of Columbia and surrounding area was designed by Maine artist Mildred Burrage. The map was sold by the National Capitol Park and Planning Commission to raise funds for the construction of the George Washington Parkway between Mount Vernon and Great Falls, Virginia. The map was printed on paper as well as linen; the linen version was offered in six different colors (red, blue, green, plum, brown and terra cotta). The design of the handkerchief shows the area of the L'Enfant plan surrounded by a border of views of prominent landmarks. The map is found in surprisingly few institutional collections according to OCLC -- three institutions hold… Read more
