dc.descriptionDescription from "Maryland from the Willard Hackerman Map Collection", George Peabody Library Exhibit Oct. 9, 2018 - March 16, 2019: "Most maps of this date were produced by lithography, but this rare chart by Baltimore map maker Fielding Lucas Jr. was skillfully engraved by hand. Updating an earlier edition of 1832, it shows the railroad line between Baltimore and Washington. It also supplies useful information for navigation such as shoal depths and lighthouse markings for safe approach. Not often preserved, but happily still pasted under the title, is the trade card for Hagger & Brother, instrument makers and retailers, who sold this particular chart at No. 28 Thames Street near the Inner Harbor. The same address earlier served as the bookstore of Nathaniel Knight, where young Frederick Douglass purchased the first book he ever owned, "The Columbian Orator".en_US
