This is a handsome map with full original wash color and keyboard-style border. It details the roads, towns and villages, ports, watershed and more. This map is difficult to date due to the inaccuracies in county delineation, particularly in the north. Very little is known about the history and editions of Greenleaf's atlases, but this map is reportedly from the 1842 edition.

References: Ristow pp.94-96; Rumsey #956.

Condition: A

Attractive example with very nice coloring, crisp impression and full margins. One small water color smudge in a blank area, else fine.

Estimate: $250 - $350
