An attractive and early map of Arkansas, showing county configurations for 1845. The map has many towns named, and a number of roads criss-cross the map. The number of miles between towns is helpfully noted, and at the top of the map the steam-boat routes are noted from Little Rock to New Orleans, Pittsburgh, and Fort Gibson. The map is surrounded in a decorative border.
Nice original color on a sturdy sheet with a little faint foxing in blank area.
