    Henry S. Tanner was one of America’s most distinguished map engravers during the first half of the 19th century. He had engraved many notable maps for cartographers Aaron Arrowsmith, Samuel Lewis and John Melish before producing his own. In his Geographical Memoir, Tanner claimed he had devoted nearly ten years of his life to his monumental map of North America. This "Map of North America" would serve as a foundation or master map for the next generation of significant maps of the American West.
