This is a handsome map with full original wash color and keyboard-style border. It details the roads, towns and villages, ports, watershed and more. The date given is suggested by existing county development and that there is no extension into Iowa within Clarke County as was commonly depicted during the so-called Honey War. Very little is known about the history and editions of Greenleaf's atlases.

References: Ristow pp.94-96; Rumsey #956.

Condition: A+

Beautiful, fine example with a tiny spot in lower border. Bright paper, dark impression, fine original hand coloring and full margins.

Estimate: $200 - $240

Sold for: $150
