B1-100. Map of Appoquinimink, New Castle Co., Delaware. Scale 1 inch to the mile. Map contains an inset map and directory of businesses in Townsend. Scale 40 rods to the inch. This map has been removed from a incomplete copy of Beers' 1868 Atlas of the State of Delaware (page 35), 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. Worn and tanned around edges with pieces missing not affecting image. Tape rapair. Name in ink along margin.
