Finely's maps employ a delicate and elegant engraving style and provided extensive topographical and watershed information. He was the dominant map maker in the United States in the early 1820s into the 1830s. His atlases were very successful, outselling rival atlases by Carey & Lea, and Tanner. His maps were printed on high quality paper and were routinely corrected and updated.

Lovely map of the state that details in pastel colors, the counties and their seats, major roads, waterways, towns, forts and settlements. Engraved by Young & Delleker.


Condition: B

Apart from a little light scattered foxing visible in blank areas, a very nice example with bright original hand coloring. Full, original margins.

Estimate: $220 - $250
