      Thanks, Larry! I'm beginning to wonder if there isn't some sort of pharonic curse on this manuscript.

      On the other hand, since I have to die of something, it might as well be as the last casualty of Antietam. . . . :)

      Jake,

      Never ask what can happen next! It is good to hear that you will be
      OK and are recovering well. Even though the book will be late,
      getting it out as quickly as that after what happened will be
      wonderful.

      I've had an order in with Amazon for several months when I first saw
      it there and look forward to receiving it when you get it done. Good
      luck on our recovery.

            You know, it's a REAL shame that Bob Younger at Morningside Books isn't with us anymore. He managed to find a way to make the full set of Bachelder maps from Gettysburg available (all 28 maps in full color) for $250. Now, he just printed them flat and loose (they shipped them boxed), but it's the closest thing I've seen in recent years to a project like the Carman atlas.

            Meanwhile, I urge everyone to email the webmaster of the Library of Congress's "American Memory" project and urge them to scan the second, REVISED volume of Carman's atlas into their giant digital database. It's not the PERFECT format, but it beats not having access to them at all.

            Best,

                Jake,

                I posted a comment on the LOC website re the revised maps.

                Perhaps a good project for a group to undertake if not to make a
                profit but to contribute funds to a non profit organization? I would
                buy a set assuming it was complete and legible as well as being
                printed on sturdy, plastic-coated paper.

                  Jake,

                  I posted a comment on the LOC website re the revised maps.

                  Perhaps a good project for a group to undertake if not to make a
                  profit but to contribute funds to a non profit organization? I
                  would
                  buy a set assuming it was complete and legible as well as being
                  printed on sturdy, plastic-coated paper.

                    That's the key to those maps (and why, after much struggle, my publishers decided we couldn't use them in my book). The information contained on them is so dense that if you shrink them down to, say, any smaller than the modern version of the OR Atlas you find in bookstores today (which is about 20% smaller than the ORIGINAL Atlas plates) you can't make out the individual regiments.

                    Your idea for a non-profit to undertake the project is a good one. About ten years ago, the Friends of the National Parks at Gettysburg did something similar, and funded a project whereby Tom Desjardin did three new topo and troop position maps of that battle (one for each day).

                    Admittedly, the Carman Atlas is 14 maps, not three, but then you woulnd't have any cartographic costs involved. All you need to do is repoduce an already extant set of maps.

                    From what I understand, the real cost comes from producing the image in a reproducable format. If the LoC ever creates high-res scans of the 2d edition, printing copies from the scans--even on a sturdy, laminate paper--would be very cheap.

                    Jake,

                    I posted a comment on the LOC website re the revised maps.

                    Perhaps a good project for a group to undertake if not to make a
                    profit but to contribute funds to a non profit organization? I would
                    buy a set assuming it was complete and legible as well as being
                    printed on sturdy, plastic-coated paper.

                    shipped them boxed), but it's the closest thing I've seen in recent
                    years to a project like the Carman atlas.

                      Are there substantive changes between the two versions of Carman's
                      maps? I didn't realize the version on the LOC website is the earlier
                      one. Is the CD available in the Antietam bookstore the earlier
                      version?

                      The problem for me with the 20% smaller copies of the OR Atlas is the
                      crease in the pages for the larger maps. Also, some printings of the
                      atlas vary in quality re the colors, details,etc. I have two versions
                      by different publishers and they are noticably different. So you are
                      correct, to make full-size copies of the Carman originals using high
                      res is needed. Regiment locations are critical for most serious
                      students of the battle so they must be very clear IMO.

                      The problem with a non profit like SHAF doing the maps is can the
                      cost of the printing be recovered? How many could be sold at $250 a
                      set to recoup printing costs? Of course the calculation has to
                      include the minimum number a printer would require before it would
                      print an order as well as any marketing expenses.

                      Are the Gettysburg Desjardin maps still available?

                      any smaller than the modern version of the OR Atlas you find in
                      bookstores today (which is about 20% smaller than the ORIGINAL Atlas
                      plates) you can't make out the individual regiments.

                      About ten years ago, the Friends of the National Parks at Gettysburg
                      did something similar, and funded a project whereby Tom Desjardin did
                      three new topo and troop position maps of that battle (one for each
                      day).

                      sturdy, laminate paper--would be very cheap.

                        Gerry,

                        You have a good suggestion. I'm sure SHAF would be concerned about
                        making a large investment in printing costs without knowing if those
                        costs would be recouped. Certainly the sets of maps could sit on a
                        shelf since they would not become obsolete but having an investment
                        of several thousands of dollars sitting idle might not be something
                        they would like after the initial sets are sold.

                        Is there a set of printed Bachelder maps available?

                        Larry

                          Larry,
                          Save Historic Antietam Foundation at one time considered printing
                          copies for sale, but the numbers did not work out. To print them large
                          enough to be legible is pretty pricey and we didn't think we could sell
                          enough to make it worthwhile. Given the access of the LOC site, it is
                          less likely now. If you have any ideas about production, we have 8x10
                          photo negatives of all fourteen maps.

                          Jake,

                          I posted a comment on the LOC website re the revised maps.

                          Perhaps a good project for a group to undertake if not to make a
                          profit but to contribute funds to a non profit organization? I would
                          buy a set assuming it was complete and legible as well as being
                          printed on sturdy, plastic-coated paper.

                          of Bachelder maps from Gettysburg available (all 28 maps in full
                          color) for $250. Now, he just printed them flat and loose (they
                          shipped them boxed), but it's the closest thing I've seen in recent
                          years to a project like the Carman atlas.

                            Yes, the LoC version is a bit odd. There are TWO separate scans of the Atlas on the irwebsite, but they re BOTH of the first (1904) edition of the Atlas. Why

                              Yes, the LoC version is a bit odd. There are TWO separate scans of the Atlas on the irwebsite, but they're BOTH of the first (1904) edition of the Atlas. Why they digitized the same edition twice--instead of digitizing one set of each edition--is beyond me

                              How substantive are the changes? That's hard to quantify--but Carman and co. felt that enough alterations had been made to justify reissuing the entire Atlas four years later. Make of that what you will. I can say that in some instances the position of a given regiment is substantively changed from one edition to the next, while in many others it's simply a matter of correcting a typo on one of the maps or adding in a label that was left off of a particular plate.

                              I don't have a copy of the Antietam bookstore CD, so I can't say which issue it is. Presumably, the original copyright info appears somewhere on the disc. If it's 1904, it's the first edition; if 1908, it's the 2d.

                              As for Desjardin's Gettysburg maps, the last time I was there (about a year or two ago) they were still for sale. If you're interested, I'd contact the Eastern National bookshop at the Gettysburg VC.

                              Are there substantive changes between the two versions of Carman's
                              maps? I didn't realize the version on the LOC website is the earlier
                              one. Is the CD available in the Antietam bookstore the earlier
                              version?

                              The problem for me with the 20% smaller copies of the OR Atlas is the
                              crease in the pages for the larger maps. Also, some printings of the
                              atlas vary in quality re the colors, details,etc. I have two versions
                              by different publishers and they are noticably different. So you are
                              correct, to make full-size copies of the Carman originals using high
                              res is needed. Regiment locations are critical for most serious
                              students of the battle so they must be very clear IMO.

                              The problem with a non profit like SHAF doing the maps is can the
                              cost of the printing be recovered? How many could be sold at $250 a
                              set to recoup printing costs? Of course the calculation has to
                              include the minimum number a printer would require before it would
                              print an order as well as any marketing expenses.

                              Are the Gettysburg Desjardin maps still available?

                              About ten years ago, the Friends of the National Parks at Gettysburg
                              did something similar, and funded a project whereby Tom Desjardin did
                              three new topo and troop position maps of that battle (one for each
                              day).

                                Yes, the full Bachelder set of 28 maps (37" x 27 1/2") was reprinted in color by Morningside Books of Dayton, Ohio, some years ago. The item still appears on their website (morningsidebooksDOTcom).

                                What would it cost to make a reproducable image of each Carman map? What is the production cost to print them? What's the market demand for the map sets? I couldn't begin to answer any of these questions. (Fairly or not, Gettysburg exists on an order of magnitude apart from any other CW battle in terms of marketplace interest.)

                                My sense, though, is that if any non profit were to try and tackle such a project, they'd need to apply for a grant from some organization or foundation to cover the costs. I'd be REALLY surprised if the economics of such an undertaking would allow such a project to break even, let alone run in the black.

                                Gerry,

                                You have a good suggestion. I'm sure SHAF would be concerned about
                                making a large investment in printing costs without knowing if those
                                costs would be recouped. Certainly the sets of maps could sit on a
                                shelf since they would not become obsolete but having an investment
                                of several thousands of dollars sitting idle might not be something
                                they would like after the initial sets are sold.

                                    We might be talking past each other.

                                    The 1904 edition of the ATLAS is the original edition of that book. The maps themselves predate that, but their first appearance bound in book form is 1904.

                                    A revised version of the ATLAS was then issued in 1908.

                                    Are their revisions between the original Carman-Cope maps from the 1890s and what was printed and bound in 1904? Yes. (As anyone on this board who has every published anything knows, one is constantly tweaking the final product.)

                                    When I talk about originals and revisions, however, I'm only speaking of the ATLAS itself as a bound book, not the individual map plates inside. 1904 isn't the date of the first maps, but it's the first date of a bound BOOK of maps.

                                      Stephen,

                                      Sorry I didn't know you had a set for sale--did you put them on eBay?
                                      If "yes," under what category? Do you have another set for sale?

                                      Larry F.

                                            There seems to be no copyright info in the documentation that accompanies the map CD sold in the bookstore, but the maps themselves have a 1904 date. Brian

                                              Carman and co. felt that enough alterations had been made to justify
                                              reissuing the entire Atlas four years later. Make of that what you
                                              will. I can say that in some instances the position of a given
                                              regiment is substantively changed from one edition to the next, while
                                              in many others it's simply a matter of correcting a typo on one of
                                              the maps or adding in a label that was left off of a particular
                                              plate.

                                              which issue it is. Presumably, the original copyright info appears
                                              somewhere on the disc. If it's 1904, it's the first edition; if 1908,
                                              it's the 2d.

                                              (about a year or two ago) they were still for sale. If you're

                                                If the maps on that disc are dated 1904, then they're from the original edition of the Antietam Atlas.

                                                Given the fact that they are digitized on a CD, I'm willing to bet that the CD was made from the same set of scans that the LoC has now made available on its website.

                                                There seems to be no copyright info in the documentation that
                                                accompanies the map CD sold in the bookstore, but the maps themselves
                                                have a 1904 date.

                                                Carman and co. felt that enough alterations had been made to justify
                                                reissuing the entire Atlas four years later. Make of that what you
                                                will. I can say that in some instances the position of a given
                                                regiment is substantively changed from one edition to the next, while
                                                in many others it's simply a matter of correcting a typo on one of
                                                the maps or adding in a label that was left off of a particular
                                                plate.

                                                which issue it is. Presumably, the original copyright info appears
                                                somewhere on the disc. If it's 1904, it's the first edition; if 1908,
                                                it's the 2d.
