A great early nineteenth century map of Massachusetts showing the roads, canals and early railways. The coloring on the map is original water color, a bit hastily applied. It is a great example of the practice among publishers during this time frame of employing children to do map coloring. Engraved by G.W. Boynton.
Few light spots, overall very good.
