Comments: Stunning early double page map of Rhode Island divided into counties and townships. Shows towns, waterways, major routes and geographic features. Includes parts of Block Island and Fisher's Island. John Reid was a publisher based in New York City. "The American Atlas" in which this map was published, was an accompaniment to William Winterbotham's "An Historical, Geographical, Commercial and Philosophical View of the United States." Reid's seminal work was the second atlas engraved and published in the United States. This map is one of the few of Rhode Island made before 1800. Minor staining to margins, slight crease to right centerfold. Hard to find.

Thanks for the note. I'm actually in NY for a few days and was hoping to get there but have to head back tomorrow. I've been stopping by the Argosy for over 60 years starting when my mother would take me there after shopping at Bloomingdale's and lunch at a long gone restaurant on the east side of Lexington between 58th and 59th that was torn down to make way for Alexander's department store; that is gone too, of course. - Peter H.
