Publication Author: Sotzmann, Daniel Friedrich

Publication Date: 1796

Publication Reference: Phillips Maps p247; Ristow 169-177.

Publication Note: From the Ebeling-Sotzmann Atlas Von Nordamerika. The Atlas was to accompany Ebeling's seven volume Erdbeschreibung und Geschichte von Amerika, die vereinten Staaten Von Amerika. Sotzmann completed only 10 maps of an intended 18 - Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Massachusetts in 1796; Rhode Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland & Delaware (1 sheet) in 1797; Maine in 1798; and New York in 1799. Sotzmann made use of the American maps of the period by Carey, Blodget, Belknap, Howell, Carleton, De Witt, Griffith, and others. Sotzmann's maps are highly detailed with symbols for churches, roads, court houses, distilleries, iron works, mills, academies, county lines, town lines, and more. They are also very rare - only a few institutions have all ten maps that were published. Sotzmann used Blodget and Carey (and two other maps published in Holland - Ristow) as sources for the Connecticut map.
