Publication Author: Drew, Columbus

Publication Date: 1870

Publication Reference: Fitzgerald 167 (1874 edition); P-Maps 285 (1874 edition); High Ridge 18 (1877 edition).

Publication Note: This is the earliest issue of this map that we have seen, earlier than any listed in Phillips or Fitzgerald. Compared to our 1876 edition (see #5040) there is far less railroad development shown on the map and the railroads are not listed to the right of the Florida Peninsula, as they are on the 1876 issue. Julius Bien is credited as engraver and printer, which is removed on the 1876 edition. There is no copyright notice. Drew's map is probably the only pocket map of Florida published in Florida in the 19th century. Not much is known about Drew - he is listed on the map as "Bookseller & Stationer" in Jacksonville. Full color by county. Map is folded into stamped dark brown cloth covers 15x9.5 with "Drew's New Map Of Florida" in gilt.
