This fine map shows the status of settlement and development in the state. Details railroads, cities, towns and mining communities, watershed, forts, and more. Extensive topographical detail in hachure. A surprising number of railroads attest to the extensive mining at the time. Delineates 31 counties through engraved line and hand coloring.
Good impression and original pastel coloring with full margins. An area of light toning in lower portion, else very good.
