650: [ca.1750s]: At61mvc: Small. Bartram, John, 1699-1777.
[Middle Atlantic states, showing rivers and mountains and location of sea shells on the tops of the mountains]
[1750s]Size: 31 x 38 cm.

As early as 1741, John Bartram sent some fossil sea shells to Sir Hans Sloan; other shells were sent to his London friend Peter Collinson in 1742. He wrote to Collinson in 1743 or 1744 that he had observed such fossils everywhere, "even on the top of the mountain that separates the waters of Susquehanna and St. Lawrence." (William Darlington, Memorials of John Bartram and Humphry Marshall [Philadelphia: 1849], p. 169.) Bartram was used to making rough maps of his travels and he made no pretense of being a competent surveyor. He apologized to Collinson for a map which he said was "Clumsily done, —having neither proper instruments nor convenient time," since he was drawing by the early light of dawn or by candlelight. Franklin wrote his friend Jared Eliot on 16 July 1747 of Bartram's discoveries: 

The great Apalachian Mountains, which run from York [Hudson] River back of these Colonies to the Bay of Mexico, show in many Places near the highest Parts of them, Strata Sea Shells, in some Places the marks of them are in the solid Rocks. 'Tis certainly the Wreck of a World we live on! We have Specimens of those Sea shell Rocks broken off near the Tops of those Mountains, brought and deposited in our Library [the Library Company of Philadelphia] as Curiosities. If you have not seen the like, I'll send you a Piece. (The Papers of Benjamin Franklin [New Haven: Yale University Press: 1961], vol. 3, p. 169.)

 The endorsement on the back reads, in Franklin's hand: "Mr. Bartram's Map very curious."

Provenance: Presented by Benjamin Franklin.

1801Size: 20.9 x 27.3 cm.

Nicholas Collin delivered this map to the Society on 16 April 1802. Collin wrote that Fahlberg "presentes by me a special map of a lately discovered dangerous shoal...as an appendage to his map of it [St. Bartholomew], sometimes ago received by the Society; and expresses a solicitious desire that it may be published for the benefit of the many American vessels that trade to that part of the West Indies: believeing this execution the more necessary, as the very frigate in which the discovery was made, though then commanded by another captain, ran aground on that shoal." The members desired Secretary John Vaughan to write and see "if any account can be published" of this "Rock lately discovered south of S. Martins."

Brown replied on 10 June 1802 that the map "of the Muscle Shoals which you did me the favor to present to the Society, was taken under the direction of Gen[era]l Wilkinson who transmitted it to a friend together with a short description which unluckily was attached to a private confidential letter, from which his correspondent would not even suffer me to make an extract.

The endorsement on the back reads: "Found by me in a parcel of Plants collected by F. Pursh w[hi]ch made part of ye Lambert Herbarium, and was bought by me in London at the Lambert sale in 1842. Edward Tuckerman." In 1807 Pursh kept a "Journal of a botanical excursion in the Northeastern parts of Pennsylvania and in the state of New York." The manuscript was found among the papers of his patron, Benjamin Smith Barton, in 1817. It has been published twice: first in Philadelphia in 1869, and then in 1923 for the Onondaga Historical Association, Syracuse, New York, with notes by William M. Beauchamp. On 3 April 1868 Thomas P. James spoke of various properties of Pursh. He told how the map was drawn and used in the botanical expedition, and he spoke of the history of the map. Asa Gray, the famous botanist, owned it, and wished to present it to the American Philosophical Society and reunite it with the journal. "The Journal and map are now, after a separation of sixty years, united."

Tabula novae Franciae, 1660. [copy]

Copied from François Du Creux, Historiae Canadensis seu novae Franciae libri decem ad annum usque Christi 1656 (Paris: 1664). This was printed in the Champlain Society Publications, volumes 30-31, translated by Percy J. Robinson (Toronto: 1951). A note by P. J. Robinson states that this map deserves study and is of special value on account of the inset map of the Huron country, the improved outline of the lakes, especially Lake Ontario, and Georgian Bay, the marking of the trails to the Hudson Bay and of the new route discovered by the Groseilliers and Radisson from Lake Nipigon.
