CRAZY CRATE JP 1-38  MAP 7:  MAP OF INDIANA- 1843  This hand colored map was engraved by Sidney B. Morse and published in 1843 by Harper and Brothers in New York. It was taken from Morse's North American Atlas by Sidney Morse and Samuel Breese. Railroad lines both existing and proposed are shown.  The original size of this map is 14 1/8" x 11" but this reprint was modified in order to accommodate our archival page protectors. Sidney Edwards Morse (1794-1871) was the son of the Reverend Jedidiah Morse and his wife, Elizabeth Ann Breese, and a younger brother of Samuel F. B. Morse (inventor of the telegraph). Jedidiah Morse had a strong interest in geography, and published several textbooks on geography which sold well and earned him the title of "Father of American Geography".  Sidney Morse, Henry A. Munson and Samuel Breese patented wax engraving in the United States and called the technique "cerography ", which they began using in 1839. This process allowed line and text to be combined in the same image and was one of the first attempts to find an alternative to expensive metal plate engraving for American maps.  Unlike engraving or lithography, which demanded the laborious drawing of a negative image, cerography allowed the image to be drawn directly. The positive image is drawn onto a wax-covered plate that is then used as a mold from which a master printing plate is cast by an electroplating process. Images could be easily cut into the soft wax layer using very little pressure.  In the early maps of Sidney Morse, lettering was hand engraved. Later, type was done by stamping into the wax with commercially produced tools. Type as small as three points could be used to hold a tremendous amount of information in a small amount of space.

With his brother, Samuel F. B. Morse, he constructed and patented a flexible piston pump, and later he invented the bathyometer, an instrument for exploring the depths of the sea.  He was also a prominent journalist in New York and with his brother, Richard, founded the New York Observer, the oldest religious newspaper in the state of New York.  Morse and Breese tried to keep the cerography process secret, but it became widely used in mapmaking, especially after Rand, McNally began using wax engraving in 1872.  Wax engraving remained an important map printing technique until the mid-twentieth century.  Price was: $9  -- 10% OFF SALE, NOW $8.10

 

CRAZY CRATE JP 1-38  MAP 8: MAP OF INDIANA- 1850.  This map is dated 1850 and comes from A New Universal Atlas of the World published by Thomas Cowperthwait and Co. in 1854.  The original size of the map is 14" x 17" but this reprint was slightly modified to accommodate our archival page protectors.  Price was: $9 -- 10% OFF SALE, NOW $8.10

 

CRAZY CRATE JP 1-38  MAP 9: MAP OF INDIANA-1877. This full color map was copyrighted by Harper and Brothers in 1877 and appeared in Harper's School Geography with maps and Illustrations Prepared Expressly for this Work by Eminent American Artists, which was published in 1878.  In March 1817, John and James Harper founded Harper Brothers, a small printing firm in New York. In 1825 their brothers, Joseph and Fletcher, joined the company. In 1833 the company name was changed to Harper and Brothers.  The company soon became the largest book publisher in the United States, publishing both fiction and nonfiction. Their authors included Herman Melville, Charles Dickens, William Thackeray, Mark Twain and Henry James.  Early in their career Harper and Brothers began to publish maps and atlases, using well established engravers, such as Alexander G. Findlay (not to be confused with Anthony Finley). Their success as book publishers encouraged them to launch their own magazine, Harper's Monthly, in 1850. In 1857 the magazine became Harper's Weekly.  Price was: $9  -- 10% OFF SALE, NOW $8.10
