This delicately drawn, manuscript map depicts the political divisions, some topography, and major cities. The map is finely rendered in ink, hand colored, and signed below the title by P. v Bommel Jr.. Preparation of manuscript maps was a typical early 19th century classroom exercise. These classroom maps are found in several public map collections. But they are quite rare due to their ephemeral nature.
