This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of South Carolina that you might want to check out.

Camille Drie is a birdseye map illustrator whose work I'd like to see more of. His seminal ”Pictoral St Louis” is a master-work that is peerless within the idiom. Unfortunately, his other works are hard to come by.

One of the very few I've been able to locate is this map of Columbia, South Carolina [gmap] in 1872.

For more map resources and imagery from this period in Columbia's history, check out the South Carolina Historical Society's website.
