Map and Chart Publishing in Boston in the Eighteenth Century
For much of the 18th century, map publishing in America was a financially precarious undertaking. The same held true in Boston, where individuals from many walks of life ventured into commercial mapmaking. David Bosse, Librarian and Curator of Maps at Historic Deerfield, explores the work of several Boston mapmakers during this period of ad-hoc publishing.
David Bosse is Librarian of Historic Deerfield and the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, and curator of maps at Historic Deerfield.
