This primer is an illustrated guide to the important events in the career of Moses Greenleaf, the first mapmaker of the state of Maine. It focuses on his activities that helped promote the settlement of the interior regions of Maine in the early decades of the 1800s, a time when Maine land was readily available. This book is a primer, a kind of illustrated book first used during the English Tudor period to teach young children how to read, and more broadly to impart moral principles. Eventually, primer became a term for any book that describes basic concepts, hence this primer conveys fundamental ideas about Moses Greenleaf and his work.
