North American map

The digitisation of publications such as Priscilla’s makes these relatively hard to find books accessible. However, what it cannot show are the maps and provide the tactile experience associated with opening them. In Excursions on North America the folded map is inside the front cover and opposite the title page. It is quite large consisted on five folds diagonally and one horizontally. The continent is outlined and the route of the travellers is traced in red. The map has the following words ‘Engraved for Priscilla Wakefield’s Excursions’.
