Descripton:
This extremely rare 1796 map is based on the 1792 plan originally published by Andrew Ellicott, a miller and surveyor living in Maryland. George Washington commissioned a survey of the city from Ellicott in 1791, and the following year asked him to complete the city plan originated by Pierre Charles L’Enfant, to which Ellicott made some modifications. In 1795, the first of two versions of this map were published – this being the second of the two. Published by John Reid in 1796, this version included in one of the most scarce and interesting of all American atlases – the second oldest printed atlas of the United States.
