Map of Charleston by Edward Crisp, "A Compleat Description of the Province of Carolina in 3 Parts," 1711
This map is a later reproduction of the Charleston inset to Edward Crisp’s 1711 published map A Compleat Description of the Province of Carolina in 3 Parts. This map is thought to be a copy of a 1704 original by Edward Crisp, who lived in Charleston, which was never published. The inset depicts eight blocks within the walls of Charleston. Prominent houses in the city and outside its bounds are labeled on the map.
A Charleston project known as Walled City Task Force featured the Crisp Map in a recent blog post in 2008. The post challenged the authenticity of the Crisp Map and provided information relating to earlier maps of Charleston.
