This large map is a scarce issue of Nebraska by the little-known H.R. Page & Co. firm of Chicago. County development is shown in attractive full hand color, which is uncommon for this late date. The map locates cities, towns, rivers, lakes, and an extensive railroad network. At bottom is an index to place names in the state.

This map was included in Page’s Illustrated Historical Atlas of Wisconsin. Page had purchased the plates from the 1878 edition by Synder, Van Vechten & Company, and expanded the atlas to include thirteen other state maps including this one.
