FFOH-WAYNE-02: D007:  1873 CALDWELL'S  ATLAS OF WAYNE COUNTY, OHIO. By J. A. Caldwell, C. E. assisted by Hon. John Brinkerhoff County Surveyor, Henry Cring C.E., C.T. Adams Sr C.E., J.H.Lee C.E.  Published by J. A. Caldell, Sunbury, Ohio.  Reprinted in 1974 by The Bookmark, Knightstown, IN.  This stunning 14" by 17" huge book of wonderful maps was taken from actual surveys by and under the direction of J. A. Caldwell.  The reprint does reproduce every page, excepting the Ohio State Map, that was in the original atlas.  It is, unlike many reprints, the same size as the original.  The original numbered 113 pages were not printed (because blank pages left behind each map were also numbered in the original atlas) and were not reproduced here.  This atlas appears from the Table of Contents to have 63 pages in it.  This is a landowner's atlas and the names are clearly written on the lots and plats where known.  Most township maps have close to a hundred little plots with names, and after my previous experience indexing that little monograph of just 17 pages, I did not even consider indexing these 63 pages!  This atlas has cardstock covers, is firmly stapled and taped.  Tape is smooth and tight and in good shape.  It is just beginning to fray at the top where it has been pulled off the shelf by a fingertip.  It has been used and there is a fold in the back cover that could become a crease if it were folded too many times more from side to side.  I think it was folded to hold on a photocopier.  Keeping it supported will help it to lie flat.  Price is $25.
