Description:

Large folding engraved map of Washington D. C. by John Russell (J. Russell Sculpt Constitu'n Row, Grays Inn Road) based on Andrew Ellicott's modified version of Pierre L'Enfant's plan of Washington. This is one of the first and better known large format maps published for the city, following the "official" plan engraved by Thackara and Vallance in 1792. Undated but published in 1795 as part of Winterbotham's "An Historical, Geographical, Commercial and Philosophical View of the American United States" published in London. Prominent features include the Capitol, President's House, the grounds of what would become the National Mall, a canal system routed through the city from the Potomac to the East River, proposed bridges, street plan with named diagonals, and over 1,100 numbered lots. *** Condition: The map has been professionally conserved and backed with minimal loss along the old fold lines and some marginal chipping with a typically close right margin. Image size is approximately 15 3/4 x 20 3/4 inches. Good overall. Bookseller Inventory #
