Product Description

By Adam Gamble & Henry F. Walling

Based on the five-foot by five-foot 1858 Map of the Counties of Barnstable, Dukes, and Nantucket Counties by Henry F. Walling, this display-style book showcases each county, town, village, and the major bodies of water that surround and connect them. It includes each home and business, road by road, complete with the names of property owners and important geographic features, as well as useful tables of statistics and delightful period illustrations. Originally produced at the end of the Great Age of Sail, at a time when whaling and salt-making were still strong industries in the region, this gorgeous wall map depicts Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket at an industrial apex.
