An attractive map with nice detail of the counties, cities, roads and railways. At top is a profile of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal. A table at bottom lists Steam Boat Routes - Richmond to Norfolk, Richmond to Washington, Richmond to Baltimore, Wheeling to Pittsburgh, and Wheeling to Cincinnati. The legend identifies canals, railroads, capital cities, leading roads plus distance along roads in miles. Fancy titling.
Original color with wide, original margins and some minor soiling confined to the blank margins.
