B1-100. Map of Broadkiln, Sussex Co., Delaware. Scale 1" to the mile. This map has been removed from a incomplete copy of Beers' 1868 Atlas of the State of Delaware (page 85), 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. Map in color. Well preserved copy.
