Maker: De Crevecoeur (Tardieu).
Antique uncolored map of Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. By De Crevecoeur, engraved by Tardieu, 1787. From an English version of the book called Letters from an American Farmer. This charming map of Nantucket features a triangular Tuckernuck Island, an enlarged Great Point area, tiny rows of trees delineating different areas, and a "Sand Ripp call'd Pochick." The numbers on this map correspond to information in the book. The (no longer complete) book can be purchased with the map for an additional $300. This map is in very good condition with a few minor stains. It has been archivally restored- cleaned, deacidified, and backed with a light-weight tissue to give the map strength. The margin on the bottom was lost at some point. The map measures approx. 7.75 x 10.75 inches to the neatlines. **NOTE- because this map requires extra insurance for shipping, an additional charge will appear on your card after your original purchase. If you would like to know what that charge will be, please contact us.** **SOLD**
