This plan shows the city in good detail with the major streets named. The map is very similar to the Jedidiah Morse map of 1794 but has a few additions and the title is in German with fancy script lettering, which is difficult to accomplish on a copper plate. The map locates the President's House, the Capitol, and Georgetown. Compass rose with fleur-de-lys. An uncommon issue.
Issued folding with a short binding trim at lower left.
