This finely engraved and detailed map was drawn by C. Roeser, Principal Draughtsman while J.A. Williamson was Commissioner. The map provides excellent detail of the entire state to include all towns and villages, roads, railroads and filled with watershed information. Good detail of coastal wetlands and waterways. The legend identifies completed railroads, railroad limits, Private Grants, townships subdivided, partially subdivided and those "missing." From the annual report of the Commissioner.
Small puncture in map invisibly closed on verso, otherwise near fine.
