The Douglass world map world map showing all the continents with all th flickr Pics Of The World Map 1024 X 698 pixels is certainly rare, but far-off more accessible is Braddock Mead's "Map of the Most Inhabited allowance of further England," published by Thomas Jefferys in 1755. Mead's map follows rather closely that of Douglass, though later than some significant improvements. For example, in Massachusetts Mead other further area names (such as "Pentusok," now Pittsfield), introduced county boundaries, and aligned Cape Ann to the mainland whereas Douglass had depicted it as an island.
Following the Revolution, the government of Massachusetts urgently required an accurate world map world map showing all the continents with all th flickr Pics Of The World Map 1024 X 698 pixels for at least three administrative objectives: calculating tax allotments to the towns based upon land valuations, supporting the sale of public land to pay off encounter debts, and informing infrastructure development. Existing maps were too antiquated and small scale to be of use. For example, dozens of townships customary after the 1750s were not shown upon the Douglass and Mead maps.
This presented the legislature later than a dilemma, as public funding for a let in Map would have been prohibitively expensive. fittingly in 1774 it resorted to an unfunded mandate, requiring each town in Massachusetts to conduct a survey of its territory and assent a plot to the Secretary of State. These would later be compiled and where necessary reconciled to develop the world map world map showing all the continents with all th flickr Pics Of The World Map 1024 X 698 pixels.
