AN INVITATION TO DELAWARE
A rare broadside map made with a very specific audience in mind. With a text in German this map targeted immigrants for the promise of a life in agriculture in the bountiful state of Delaware. Addressing the agriculture and land, what was prevalent, and its potential, this map shows the towns, roads and drainages.
(Can you imagine such a map issued in Spanish today?)
Condition is very good, with minor deterioration to the old folds, but solid. Minor soiling exaggerated by our photo. Image size is approximately 13.5 x 23 (inches)
