This terrific, early map of the state shows only 13 counties. The small area that Caledonia County gained from Essex in 1824 is not shown on the map suggesting this is from the first, 1824, edition. Roads, towns and settlements are detailed. Beautifully engraved by Young & Delleker and colored in vivid pastel shades. Finley published his atlases between 1824 to 1834, with separate issues published in the years 1824, 26, 29, 30, 31, 33 and 1834, according to Ristow. A near fine example of this map.

References: Ristow pp 268-70.

Condition: A

A near fine example with lovely original hand coloring, full margins and crisp, early impression. A little marginal foxing at upper left, else fine.

Estimate: $150 - $200
