Part of a
Map of the Northern Part of the State of New York
Amos Lay and Arthur J. Stansbury
Lay published a number of excellent early maps of New York State between
1801 and 1820.
Stansbury went on to write a small book titled Elementary Catechisms
of the Constitution of the United States
(1828) which was widely used
to teach about the basic mechanisms of the United States Constitution and
our system of self-government as designed for a free American society.
