14477 This is the original 1869 Historical Map of Nantucket, Surveyed and Drawn by the Rev. F.C. Ewer. Published by The Major & Knapp, Eng. Mfg. & Lith. Co., 71 Broadway, N.Y. It contains a list of historical data through 1865 and shows important recordings of old roads, Indian place-names and Proprietors' set-offs. There have been a number of later editions of this map, but this is assuredly the scarcest and most desirable iteration. A subsequent issue bears the date 1869 but contains additional historical data to 1886, which is very misleading.
