Title: "Nova Caesarea: A Cartographic Record of the Garden State, 1666-1888"
Location: Main Gallery of Firestone Library
Curator: John Delaney

Summary: Commemorating the 350th anniversary of the naming of New Jersey, this exhibition introduces viewers to the maps that charted the state's development — from unexplored colonial territory to the first scientifically surveyed state in the Union. Coastal charts, manuscript road maps and early state maps provide a historical background to the major focus of the exhibition: the state's first wall maps and county atlases. The large scale of these maps allowed mapmakers to include the names/locations of 19th-century merchants and farmers, hence personalizing local history.

For further details, please see the Rare Books and Special Collections website.
