This handsome map with a keyboard-style border is Greenleaf's atlas map of the state, detailing the roads, towns and villages, ports, watershed and more. The map also locates Philadelphia and New York and shows a portion of the Hudson River. Very little is known about the history and editions of Greenleaf's atlases, but this map is reportedly from a dated 1842 atlas. Maps by Greenleaf are uncommon and are highly sought after.
