Finely's maps employ a delicate and elegant engraving style and provided extensive topographical and watershed information. He was the dominant map maker in the United States in the early 1820s into the 1830s. His atlases were very successful, outselling rival atlases by Carey & Lea, and Tanner. His maps were printed on high quality paper and were routinely corrected and updated.

Detailed map of the state and counties locating the roads, towns and settlements of the day. Extends to include simple plans of Manhattan and Philadelphia. Engraved by Young & Delleker.
