Notes
Biographical/historical: These items represent a portion of the holdings of some 30,000 items assembled by Emmet, and donated to the Library in 1896 by trustee John Stewart Kennedy. Emmet developed a passionate interest in American history after a boyhood visit to Philadelphia, when he first saw the original Declaration of Independence, and went on to collect, for some fifty years, drawings, engravings, maps, and manuscripts relating to the American Revolution and the early history of the United States. Other portions of the Emmet Collection are visual items in the Print Collection of the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints, and Photographs, and manuscripts, in the Manuscripts and Archives Division.
Description
These maps, collected by the New York physician Thomas Addis Emmet (1828-1919), document the United States in the periods prior to, during, and following the American Revolution.
