B1-100. Map of Lincoln, Cedar Creek, Sussex Co., Delaware. Map contains a directory of businesses. Scale 50 rods to the inch. This map has been removed from a incomplete copy of Beers' 1868 Atlas of the State of Delaware (page 65), which contains "actual surveys by and under the direction of D.G. Beers." Daniel G. Beers came from a family of atlas publishers. He and his brother, Silas, operated in Philadelphia, the center of atlas publication in the United States, until 1868, when he moved to New York City. Beers and his family produced detailed maps of many Northeastern states, cities, and counties until the 1880s, when the United States began to systematize mapping practices, and mapmaking moved out of private publication (Mano, Jo Margaret). Engraved by Worley & Bracher of Philadelphia and printed by Fred Bourquin. Chipped along edges with small pieces missing not affect image.
