Additional Details

One of James Wilson's earliest works, published shortly after he established himself as America's first globe maker in 1813. Depicts the world's monarchies as branches of a tree emanating from creation through history. It was issued in two sheets; the sheet offered here shows the world's history from "Adam, or the Creation" through 83 A.D. Wilson studied with Amos Doolittle, and shows the influence of Doolittle's distinctively American engraving style. Rosenberg & Grafton, Cartographies of Time, pages 146-7.
