This is an early American map of the state of Pennsylvania. It shows early county boundaries, cities, towns, roads, portages and rivers. A few mountain ranges are sketchily depicted but there is little other topographical information. The Erie Triangle is shown as a part of New York. There is a compass rose at upper left and longitude is measured from Philadelphia. The map was engraved by Amos Doolittle.
References: Wheat & Brun #446.
There is printer's ink residue covering the entire map. There has been an attempt to clean this residue resulting in abrasion of some of the engraving with a few lines of facsimile.
