Nova Caesarea: A Cartographic Record of the Garden State 1666-1888 Including the First Maps, Wall Maps & County Atlases as well as Past & Current Views Commemorating the 350th Anniversary of the Naming of New Jersey
This volume, issued for the 350th anniversary (1664-2014) of the naming of New Jersey, reproduces historic maps that both memorialize the past and orient the future. Supporting the maps are illustrations from atlases and, where possible, recent photographs of the same structures and areas for the purpose of historical contrast. An important source has been utilized: Thomas F. Gordon’s Gazetteer of the State of New Jersey, the state’s first gazetteer, published in 1834. Gordon’s notes on every village, hamlet, and creek provide interesting textual references to the visual features of the maps. Includes an 1828 map of New Jersey in a pocket inside the back cover. There is also a special edition available of 350 volumes bound in cloth, numbered and signed by author and designer, including a separate folder of large facsimiles of the first wall maps of New Jersey’s 21 counties, with both book and folder housed in a custom slipcase.
