From Geography for School, Upon a Plan Entirely New Atlas of Forty Luminous and Concise Maps. By Luke Drury, A. M. (USA). Publisher Miller and Hutchins, Providence, Rhode Island. Drury was a preeminent mapmaker of the early 19th century, and his state maps in particular were noted for their quality and accuracy before being largely overtaken by Finley. The 1822 edition in particular is difficult to obtain and desirable.
