Bishop James Madison (1749-1812)
Inset Map of Ohio from Bishop Madison's Map of Virgina.
Engraved map by Frederick Bossler.
Richmond, Virginia, 1807 (First Edition).
24 3/4" x 25" sheet.

First edition of the Ohio portion of Madison's famous map of Virginia first published in 1807, only 4 years after Ohio had become a state. Bossler's inset map is one of the earliest maps of Ohio based upon an actual survey and was sufficiently rare that it is not listed in Smith's The Mapping of Ohio, despite being much larger and more detailed than virtually all other Ohio maps of the period.
