Lot 0058
  • Title/Content of Map: 1827 Carey and Lea Florida Map -- Geographical, Statistical, and Historical Map of Florida
  • Date Printed: 1827, Philadelphia
  • Cartographer: Carey & Lea
  • Size: 22 x 17.6 in.

    This is a rather scarce late edition of the Carey & Lea map series, in 1827. Florida Territory still only has 25K inhabitants and the capitol, Tallahassee, was just established in 1825. The map color codes the 12 counties, and offers a great deal of detail as to waterways and other topographical features as well as to the early settlements. Also, there is voluminous detail about Florida in three border areas -- climate, rivers, bays, population, history, and so on.

    Please note that this lot has a confidential reserve. When you leave a bid in advance of the auction, submit your maximum. The bidder who has submitted the highest bid wins the lot, provided the bid exceeds the reserve price.
