Attractive map with county development throughout, but no settlement beyond Saginaw. Railroads shown only in the extreme southern portion of the state. Inset of the Western Part of Michigan. Table gives the cities and distances along the steamboat routes from Detroit to Forts Gratiot and then continuing to Fort Howard. Fancy titling and decorative scroll borders.
Nice clean example with fine original coloring.
