Title:  Universal Asylum
Category:  Americana, Maps
Date:  December 1792
Published in:  Philadelphia, PA
 The very scarce first printing of the Thackara and Vallance map of L’Enfant’s plan of Washington. This map and the one of Pennsylvania in the issue of January 1788 are rarely found accompanying the original magazines and are the hardest to find plates of all published in this title. The true first printing, this copy has never been folded into the magazine, has full margins and deckled-edges, but is identical in all other aspects, to maps found bound in the magazine, and is on similarly watermarked paper. Also, a large fragment of the original front wrapper of the March 1792 issue.
