This splendid engraving was the first large official map of the national capital. It records the plan drawn by Pierre Charles L’Enfant and modified by Andrew Ellicott and Thomas Jef-ferson. The strong geometry of the design and the clarity of the engraving combine to make this one of the most striking of American cartographic prints.
The museum quality edition of this plan is printed on a heavy, cover stock paper and in a larger size to highlight the details of the engraving’s lines and shading.
