An updated history of the [1807] Price-Strother map of North Carolina has
been published on line in the Journal of Early Southern Decorative Arts
<http://mesdajournal.org/> (aka the MESDA Journal). Much has been written
about colonial era maps of North Carolina, but the very first state map
published from actual surveys has received woefully inadequate attention.
This article attempts to rectify that injustice. Quoting Jonathan Price’s
eulogist, “It is believed that neither the public utility and vast
importance of the [map], nor the difficulty in executing it, have ever been
reflected on by one in a thousand.” Why don’t you become one in a thousand?
It’s real easy. Just follow this link

The author owes immeasurable gratitude to the many subscribers of these
listservs who provided valuable information, advice, or other assistance in
the compilation of this article.

Supplementary information pertaining to the map will be found in a series
of 4 posts today on the North Carolina Map Blog <http://blog.ncmaps.org>.

Have a wonderful day!
