Maps

Thoreau's drawing of Cape Cod is taken from Henry David Thoreau, Cape Cod, ed. Joseph J. Moldenhauer. (Princeton, NJ: Princeton UP, 1988). According to the notes for the illustrations to that edition:

Thoreau traced or copied this map of Cape Cod from a contemporary chart and entered a few notes based on his own observations, such as the remarks about cedar swamps and farmland near the Nauset Lights. Houses are represented by dots, churches by the circles surmounted by crosses, hills by triangles, and township boundaries by dotted lines. The manuscript map itself, part of the Thoreau Collection at the Concord Free Public Library, is folded and soiled from use in the field; the present illustration is an enhanced line copy, from Robert F Stowell, A Thoreau Gazetteer, ed. William L. Howarth (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1970), p. 22. Thoreau omits the names of several communities and sites that figure importantly in his narrative. Orleans Village is the cluster of dots directly northeast of Mill Hill at the inner elbow of the Cape. Eastham Center lies north and east of Great Pond, and north and west of the marsh labeled "200" in the northwest cove of Nauset Harbor. The Methodist Camp Ground was situated north and a bit east of Eastham Center, approximately opposite "Nauset Lt." "South Vil." at the head of Blackfish Creek and "North Vil." at the head of Duck Creek are the two Wellfleet communities. Truro Village is the northernmost cluster of dots, on the inner margin of the Cape's "fist." Two other manuscript maps of the Cape, also reproduced in a Thoreau Gazetteer, are housed at The Huntington Library.--Reprinted by permission of Princeton University Press.

Samuel de Champlain's map of Mallebarre (Nauset harbor) is taken from Samuel Eliot Morison, Samuel de Champlain: Father of New France (Boston: Little,Brown, 1972), pp. 66-67, courtesy of Harvard College Library. Permission to reproduce this illustration has been requested from Little, Brown.
