of Florida, 1825
One of the first detailed maps showing interior information in Florida is this map published by Anthony Finley in 1825. It was the best of its time, showing with fair accuracy such landmarks as the Arredondo Grant, Micanopy, Wanton's, the Natural Bridge, interior roads, and other details. Anthony Finley was among the greatest American map makers of the Federal period, publishing maps in Philadelphia rather than selling imported ones. In addition to his "New General Atlas," published in various editions from 1824 and later, Finley published pocket maps for travelers and wall maps for school use. He often collaborated with renowned cartographers and engravers of the Philadelphia area such as J.H. Young and Henry S. Tanner.
