The map is on a full folio sheet (22" x 17.6") with English text below giving a brief description of Kentucky's Boundaries, Productions, Rivers, Climate, Chief Towns, Manufactures, Commerce, Education, and Religion. The finely engraved map delineates the counties, roads and major towns. Kentucky and Tennessee are almost always shown on the same map, so it is uncommon to find Kentucky alone during this period. Drawn by Fielding Lucas and engraved by Young & Delleker.

Original color with some toning along the centerfold.
