John Melish (1771–1822) was the first publisher in the United States to specialize in geographical and cartographic works. First published in 1816, this was the first American-produced wall map depicting the country from coast to coast. Melish frequently revised and corrected the plates. He published new editions in 1818, 1819, 1820, and 1822, which comprise some twenty-four different issues and states. Notwithstanding the many issues, the map has become extremely rare, and the present last-lifetime edition appears to the scarcest of all in the trade.
