Published by prominent Irish-American businessman Mathew Carey, this unique depiction of the globe is historically significant. It was produced only a decade following the conclusion of the American Revolution. Americans and Europeans alike were eager for updated maps that showed contemporary geopolitical boundaries and naval routes. The detailed inclusion of Captain Cook’s voyages provides another layer of historical significance and makes this an authentic piece of cartographical and nautical history. Engraved by prolific Philadelphia-based Thackara & Vallance, the distinctive style and classic aesthetic of this illustration immediately transport the viewer back in time, developing a bond between the past and present.
Carey fled Ireland in 1784 after publishing two nationalist newspapers and settled in Philadelphia in 1784. His publishing company became one of the most recognized sources for information, and Carey grew into a prominent national political figure with support from John Adams. He also published the first Roman Catholic Bible in the United States in forty-eight installments, which would become known as the Carey Bible. Carey would go on to serve in the American Philosophical Society and was vocal in his support of a robust naval presence.
By 1795 European control in North America was waning, and the Pinckney Treaty allowed American use of the Port of New Orleans, which expanded access via the Mississippi River and set the Louisiana Purchase in motion. Thomas Jefferson would complete the transaction in 1803 and give the United States control of the crucial waterway that would transform the American economy for decades.
