Attractive, large map of the Eastern United States, the Yucatan Peninsula and the West Indies with insets of Lesser Antilles, Atlantic travel and cable routes, and Long Island. A color key at bottom identifies the colonial possessions of six countries. The legend locates forts, mines, railroads, wagon roads, canals and sea routes. The full map was printed on two sheets meant to be joined. This is only the eastern sheet, but it contains the title and imprint so it stands on its own quite admirably.
