Early map of the state that is finely engraved and full of detail. The map shows fine detail of watershed, towns, wagon roads and mountains. This map was copied and reduced from either Tanner's version in 1796 or Lewis' version in 1795. All three use an exaggerated latitude making the state appear longer north and south.
References: Wheat & Brun #608.
Nice bright impression. There is some slight creasing and a small stain below the title cartouche. Issued folded and now flat.
