The Osher Map Library at the University of Southern Maine is pleased to host a traveling exhibition titled: Charting an Empire: The Atlantic Neptune. This traveling exhibition originated at the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library.
The Canadian-American Center’s director Stephen J. Hornsby recently gave a presentation to start the exhibition. The presentation is based on his most recent award winning book, Surveyors of Empire: Samuel Holland, J.F.W. Des Barres and the Making of the Atlantic Neptune.
Here is a video, highlighting the presentation, and Stephen Hornsby’s work:
