Lovely county pocket map of the state from the 1866 plates, here updated to 1874. Very detailed on a scale of 10 miles per inch, the map shows towns and villages, roads and railroads, watershed and swamps, mills and factories, and much more. Surrounded by a large and very decorative border. It folds into original brown cloth boards with embossed gilt titling. Inside cover pasted label advertises Colton's other maps, atlases and guide books. A desirable pocket map in near fine condition.
A few tiny fold intersection splits with repairs on verso, common on a map of this size printed on thin banknote quality paper. Covers near fine less some brown spots.
