1822 Carey VT State mapl   

Stylized mountain ranges and highlighted county boundaries make this old Vermont map an especially attractive example of early cartography.  This map was published as part of an atlas entitled" "A Complete Historical, Chronological, And Geographical American Atlas" by H.C. Carey and I. Lea

By this time Vermont has been divided into the twelve counties that exist today, thought some of the towns, notably in the northeastern regions, have their ancient names.  They Carey map shows us the principal roads in Vermont.  By 1822, there were more than 200,000 residents in the Green Mountain State.

This copy of the 1822 Carey map comes from the David Rumsey historical map collection.  The publisher's note states that this atlas was the first Americal atlas to include explanatory text surrounding the map.  Copies of the map with that text included are available here
