Toward a National Cartography:American Mapmaking, 1782-1800
Michael Buehler, of Boston Rare Maps, will address the development of mapmaking in the United States in the years immediately after the American Revolution. That period saw the emergence of a cartography that was distinctly American, different in goals, subject matter, methods, iconography and aesthetics. Michael will focus on core features of this new American cartography, particularly how American maps reflected the ambition and optimism characteristic of the early Republic, as Americans sought to transform the landscape in the service of their economic and political goals. The talk will be illustrated with examples and vivid stories from his "Toward a National Cartography" exhibit now on view at the Harvard Map Collection.
