Comments: This large map of Asia offers ample detail in both the mainland and the islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. It extends from the Arctic Circle south to New Zealand, and from Italy east to Polynesia. With its fine engraving and wealth of labeled information, the map exemplifies the qualities that have led historians to consider the "New American Atlas" from which it is sourced as one of the most magnificent atlases ever published in the United States. The map is in excellent condition with deluxe margins. Henry Schenck Tanner (1786-2858) was an American cartographer and statistical geographer. Born in New York, he moved to Philadelphia where he established his well-known publishing company with his brother. Tanner was the first American to publish a map of Texas, which subsequently went through eight editions. However, he is best known and most renowned for his New American Atlas. This fine map of Asia is a wonderful example of his work.

I usually receive my packages as soon as delivered. However, this one had quite a night outside in a snow storm. Thanks to the extra care in packaging and double layer of wrapping cardboard and plastic bag, the book survived in pristine condition.... It sat in a three foot snow drift pounded by snow plows, in minus 25Temps overnight and was discovered this afternoon, the top of the package peeking out of the drift. If not for the attention to packaging and packing materials, this book would have been destroyed. Please let the people who package our treasures know that they make a difference. Whether in person or mail order, you folks rock. Best wishes from the (damned) frozen Adirondacks... - E.E.
