A Pre-Publication Offer
T O COM M E MORAT E the 350th anniversary (1664–
2014) of the naming of New Jersey, Princeton University
Library will publish Nova Caesarea: A Cartographic Record of the
Garden State, 1666–1888 in the summer of 2014. This compre-
hensive and extensively illustrated volume will introduce read-
ers to the maps that charted the state’s development—from
unexplored colonial territory to the first scientifically surveyed
state in the Union. An introductory section on coastal charts,
manuscript road maps, and early state maps will provide a his-
torical background to the major focus of the book: the state’s
first wall maps and county atlases. The large scale of these
maps allowed their creators to include the names and locations
of nineteenth-century merchants and farmers, hence personal-
izing local history. The maps will be supplemented with litho-
graphs from the atlases and photographs of the locations today.
