Description: 

Henry W. Hopkins (1838-1920) was an American land surveyor and civil engineer active in the eastern United States and Canada in the last half of the 19th century. His specialty was large, folio-sized real-estate or land-ownership atlases produced and sold for prominent cities and counties of the time. The atlases were outstanding examples then of cadastral surveying; today, as visual records of a fixed and knowable past, they hold interest and appeal for both scholarly researchers and armchair explorers.
