MELISH MASTERPIECE. THE FIRST WALL MAP TO SHOW

THE FULL EAST-WEST EXTENT OF THE UNITED STATES


MELISH, JOHN. MAP OF THE UNITED STATES WITH CONTIGUOUS BRITISH & SPANISH POSSESSIONS. JOHN MELISH. PHILADELPHIA. c.1820, June 16 corrected to 1822. OUTLINE HAND COLOR. COPPER ENGRAVING. "compiled from the latest & best authorities by John Melish. Engraved by J. Vallance and [H.S.] Tanner... corrected to 1822" Walter Ristow couldn't heap enough praise on to this map. He considered it 'a significant milestone in the history of American commercial cartography.' As for Melish himself and his relative importance he said: 'It remained for John Melish (1771-1822) to [be the first to] devote exclusive attention to publishing geographical and cartographical products. Melish played a foremost role in bringing together from many and varied sources the geographical and cartographical knowledge of the period, and presenting it systematically and graphically for the edification and enlightenment of the citizens of the young republic.' Scottish born and university educated, Melish was a textile manufacturer ruined by events that lead to the War of 1812. He relocated to the United States in 1811. Sometime between June and November 1816 he published the first of nearly twenty states of his wall map, the earlier in six sheets. It was very successful. Three editions of a guide book to the map, 'A Geographical Description', appeared before 1818. In it was said, "editions of moderate size, only, are prepared, so as to afford frequent opportunities of bringing forward new matter." Not said was that this served to preserve the copper plates from excessive wear prolonging their life. Travel accounts of Zebulon Pike, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and William Darby, who surveyed parts of Texas, were used as soon as they appeared. The most important of the map issues was June 1820 which had three more sheets added at the bottom expanding it to include all of Mexico and the West Indies. What had been previously only in an inset is now shown in full. This shows, in that the register between the new sheets and the old in certain areas is not perfect. Later issues of the map greatly improved the descriptions of the interior of Texas and it was the official map of the Adams-Onis Treaty. The present example is one of the two issues corrected to 1822. Precisely which has not yet been determined. Melish died in 1822 and his plates were then used by James Finlayson to bring out a new state with himself as publisher in 1823. This great wall map was among the first to show the United States stretching from Atlantic to Pacific fulfilling its "Manifest Destiny" role in the eyes of viewers. Professionally restored and laid down on new canvas. Portions along both outer margins gone and filled, not greatly affecting the image. Somewhat browned but in good condition for a wall map version not dissected to be a pocket or case one. Op cit. W.W. Ristow. American maps and mapmakers. 1985. passim. 42.25"H. x 55.5"W. GOOD.

VERY RARE LEWIS ROBINSON WALL MAP OF THE COUNTRY. AKRON, OHIO 1838 UPDATED BEST EDITION

ROBINSON, LEWIS. MAP OF THE UNITED STATES Compiled from the latest authorities. Published by Lewis Robinson & Co. ... LEWIS ROBINSON & CO. AKRON, OHIO. 1838. PART HAND COLOR. STEEL ENGRAVING. Engraved by J.G. Darby Four sheet wall map on rods, carefully steel engraved, and hand outlined color. There are seven vicinity insets, Cincinnati, Albany, Philadelphia, Niagara, Boston, south Florida and Baltimore/Washington. Also a Statistical Table below title. The portion of Texas shown shows John Camerron's Grant, Felisola's Grant, Burnett's Grant, Vheling's Grant, Zavalla's Grant and Austin's Colony. Robinson was a prolific but highly ephemeral wall map publisher to whom Walter W. Ristow devoted two and a half pages (pp.271-73) He can be credited with being the first to emphasize regional and state maps and to distribute them in unorthodox ways, itinerant peddlars by horse and wagon. He evidently kept meticulous records for he is credited with selling these peddlers 6,774 maps. After soliciting reports of Robinson holdings from fifty libraries and collections, only 65 various examples were located in 1962. Dalphin and McCorison in their article "Lewis Robinson-Entrepreneur" provided a bibliography of known maps bearing his imprint. The large United States map first appeared in 1833 for $3; this 1838 edition is a much more finished and elegant production. Extra fine wove plate stock was used in this edition. Robinson engraved his own state maps but hired J.G. Darby to steel engrave the national ones. He created the attractive cartouche with an eagle in clouds at its top above elegant graphics. While Ristow says his coloring was unattractive, in this case it was done with care and is quite tasteful. Robinson did not copyright his maps so many issues are not in the Library of Congress collections. His U.S. maps are not in Philips. "As a result," Ristow said, "the number of extant copies of Robinson maps is shamefully small. ... Little remains to bear evidence of the extraordinary energy of Lewis Robinson, entrepreneur..."
