An extremely scarce map, this is Willis Thrall's 1831 pocket map of Connecticut. Thrall's map, which is dated at bottom center, covers the entire state of Connecticut as well as the adjacent Long Island Sound. Connecticut is here divided into eight color coded counties. Inset plans of New Haven, Hartford, and the New england States, rest in the lower right quadrant. The upper right quadrant features a profile of the Farmington Canal. A list of Connecticut governors starting with John Winthrop of 1665, and updated to include John S. Peters of 1831, appears in the upper left quadrant.

According to the Connecticut map historian edmond Thompson, this map was first engraved by Daggert and issued between 1827 and 1829. This is the second edition, published in 1831 with an update to the list of governors and the names of Thrall and ely added to the imprint. It was later reissued by different publishers in 1836, 1847, 1854 and 1858. This edition and the virtually unknown first edition are by far the most desirable and are found in few collections - a rare opportunity. It is also noteworthy that this map was published in New Haven, Connecticut.
