Additional Details

The Drew maps of Florida were published throughout the 1860s, '70s, and '80s, and were apparently a family affair, with Columbus Drew preceding Horace in production of the map. Rumsey (see 5190) says of it: "Drew's map is probably the only pocket map of Florida published in Florida in the 19th century."
