Delightful Delaware

A Small Sampling of our New Delaware Maps
Throughout this rugged winter we have been working hard to add new items to our online inventory and one of the exciting new acquisitions is a collection of maps from the New Topographical Atlas of the State of Delaware of 1868.  You can find many historic locations on these maps, including the towns along Delaware Bay, Rehoboth Beach, Lewes, and the DuPont estates like Winterthur. If you would like to see all of these new maps of the towns of Delaware, just click the picture above!

Other notable new collections include a restock of our Lavoisne maps and historical charts, like this wonderful example which shows the history of the United States from first settlement by Europeans to 1821:
OTH150 Chronological and Statistical Map of the United States, From their First Settlement, to the Year 1821. No. 69. - 1821

We have also recently listed many maps by Stieler, a German atlas publisher, whose maps have excellent detail, including cities, large towns, topographic information, and more.  If you are considering a map of a European country, take a look at these maps!  Here is a nice example of Stieler's lovely maps:

POL021 South Pole - Sud-Polar-Karte - c. 1876

Lastly, we also have new maps of the towns in Windsor County, Vermont, which you can see by clicking here:

The Physical Atlas of Natural Phenomena

WOR253 Zoological Geography: Geographical Distribution of Aves (Birds). - 1856
One of the many charming new additions to our website are from Johnston's "The Physical Atlas of Natural Phenomena" of 1856.  Take this map for example: it shows the distribution of birds throughout the world and in Europe, with illustrations showing birds of the "old world" and "new world" as well as a chart showing the distribution of these animals by height above sea level.  But this atlas is about more than birds- there are similar maps for rodents, carniverous animals, the magnetism of the earth, the various grains, and much more.  We recommend you browse through these fascinating maps to see them all!

Mappy Women's Day

Bicycling on the Riverside Drive, New York - 1894
Celebrate International Women's Day on March 8th with an antique print, article, or historical timeline.  The only woman shown on the latter (out of hundreds of names) is Queen Victoria, proof that what is excluded from an historical document is often as interesting as what is included.
