(AMERICAN REVOLUTION--HISTORY.) Tanner, Benjamin; after Barralet. America Guided by Wisdom:An Allegorical Representation of the United States. Engraving, 18 1/4 x 24 1/2 inches; moderate toning, faint dampstaining. [Philadelphia, 1815 or earlier]
Minerva, goddess of wisdom, is in the foreground offering counsel to the Genius of America (seated with the "Union and Independence" shield). An equestrian statue of Washington stands guard in the background, with the fruits of American commerce, agriculture, and industry all on display. This is apparently the first state; Stauffer 3115 describes another state which credits the engraver as Tanner, Vallance, Kearny & Co., a firm which Tanner joined in 1815.
