Attractive state map with good detail throughout locating numerous towns and villages, railroads, canals and rivers. Clearly shows the National Road cutting across the middle of the state. A table to the left gives the steamboat routes from Louisville to Pittsburgh and from Louisville to New Orleans, while the right of the map has a profile of the Wabash and Erie Canal. Surrounded in a decorative scroll border.
Pleasantly toned throughout with original hand color. There is a little marginal soil, not affecting map.
