This rare wood-engraved map of Connecticut is surrounded by a decorative border of the 24 state seals that were in existence at the time. Arkansas was next in line to achieve statehood in 1836 and the map reports population data as of the 1830 census, putting the date of this map somewhere in between. The map displays basic detail of towns, cities and counties as well as rivers, lakes and mountains. This unusual map was a supplement to an annual run of the "Philadelphia Mirror" from July 1836 to July 1837 (56 issues).


Condition: B+

Issued folding with a some light spots in the image.
