Map of St. Georges, New Castle County, Delaware. Scale 1 1/8" to the mile. This map has been removed from a incomplete copy of Beers' 1868 Atlas of the State of Delaware (page 31), 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 he moved to New York City in 1868. 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. Map in color.
