This attractive map is from the French edition of Carey & Lea's American Atlas. Delineated by county, the map is filled with detail of cities and towns, wagon roads, drainage and topography. County development is current to 1820 with the addition of Morgan in the northern part of the state. The map is typically surrounded by panels of French text, but this example was trimmed for the purposes of framing.
