This large and detailed map delineates the progress of public surveys throughout the state. About one-third of the state, in the north and east, remains unsurveyed. A large inset lists 340 "Private Grants finally surveyed" plus three Indian Reservations (Nome Lackee, Nome Cult and Sebastian).
Attractive later color enhances the map. Much of the right margin has been replaced due to a binder's trim and the border is drawn in facsimile. The map is backed with tissue.
