Title

United States of America map

Description

This item consists of three files from an teaching atlas from England created by Rev. Edward Patteson. The first is a map of the United States, apparently not yet reflecting the Louisiana Purchase. The second is what Patteson terms a "Blank Duplicate" of the first map, which he argues will be found "very convenient...as giving a much clearer view of the number and situation of the Towns, Rivers, &c. than a Map crowded with names." Patteson's pedagogy seems to have entailed students recognizing political boundaries at least in terms of latitudes and natural features, like rivers and mountain ranges.

The third image is a merged document enacting Patteson's design to have the Blank Duplicate "placed opposite to the written Map."
