A handsome county map with good detail throughout locating numerous towns and villages, rivers, canals and railroads with distances along major wagon roads. Tables at bottom right name the counties and county seats with populations in 1830 and 1840. Steamboat and stagecoach routes from Trenton are given in several tables at left. The map copyright date is 1834, but county configuration suggests a circa date of 1850 with the addition of Ocean County from Monmouth County.
