The map shows the entire state with remarkable detail for the time. Shows roads, watershed, county lines and topography. Most settlement is along the Delaware River and the southeastern portion, as well as around Pittsburgh. Locates the Old Purchase Line extending from the Allegheny River. Howell copied this map from his larger map of 1792. This issue is believed to be from the 1834 American State Papers.
