Publication Note: The third U.S. state atlas, after Mill's North Carolina and Burr's New York State. Contains six maps, one of which is a sheet of Geologic sections, and a sheet of Meteorological Diagrams. The maps are engraved by William Chapin of New York. The atlas accompanied Greenleaf's Survey of the State of Maine and his Map of Maine, all published together in 1829. The first four maps relate to the Northeastern Boundary dispute and are the only maps published in Maine that dealt with the boundary question. The fifth and sixth maps relate to grants, patterns of settlement, population, etc. The final plate gives Meteorological diagrams with information derived from Greenleaf's own observations of climate. In original half leather, marbled paper covered boards with printed title and index label. This copy has notes from Portland Bookseller Francis O'Brien written in 1954 and stating that "This copy is from the noted Maine collection of Janus G. Elder of Lewiston, Maine ... See tribute to him in the preface to Williamson's Bibliography of Maine."
