His maps were printed on high quality paper and were routinely corrected and updated.

Fine map of the state that details the county seats, roads, towns and settlements. Good detail along the Tennessee River. A particularly crisp engraving by Young & Delleker.

Fine impression on thick paper. One tiny spot in blank area of map, still very good.
