Niagara Falls 1823
A Map of North America, Constructed According To The Latest Information, Tanner, Henry S., 1823
This close up view of Niagara Falls comes from the elaborate title cartouche to Henry Tanner Map of North America, 1823, which appears in Tanner's American Atlas of the same year. This scene plus several others in the cartouche make it one of the most beautiful title ornaments of early 19th century American mapping.
