American City Maps from 1904

The Encyclopedia Britannica was first published between 1768 and 1771 in Edinburgh, Scotland as three volumes. One hundred years later the landmark ninth edition (30 volumes) was printed and became known for its eminent contributors, scholarship, and literary style. This was the first edition to have the new American supplement, with articles written by Americans, and some beautiful fold out maps of important American cities. I have eleven of these maps; Baltimore, Boston, Brooklyn, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, and St. Paul, and Washington, D.C. , which I posted below for you to see.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and vintage things, especially old books. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
