The Douglass appennini Apennines Mountains On Map 1000 X 629 pixels is extremely rare, but far away more accessible is Braddock Mead's "Map of the Most Inhabited part of further England," published by Thomas Jefferys in 1755. Mead's map follows rather next to that of Douglass, even if similar to some significant improvements. For example, in Massachusetts Mead other further place names (such as "Pentusok," now Pittsfield), introduced county boundaries, and connected Cape Ann to the mainland whereas Douglass had depicted it as an island.
Following the Revolution, the presidency of Massachusetts urgently required an accurate appennini Apennines Mountains On Map 1000 X 629 pixels for at least three administrative objectives: calculating tax allotments to the towns based upon house valuations, supporting the sale of public house to pay off raid debts, and informing infrastructure development. Existing maps were too outmoded and small scale to be of use. For example, dozens of townships expected after the 1750s were not shown upon the Douglass and Mead maps.
This presented the legislature similar to a dilemma, as public funding for a welcome Map would have been prohibitively expensive. appropriately in 1774 it resorted to an unfunded mandate, requiring each town in Massachusetts to conduct a survey of its territory and concede a plot to the Secretary of State. These would then be compiled and where critical reconciled to develop the appennini Apennines Mountains On Map 1000 X 629 pixels.
