This is the German edition of the Tanner/Mitchell Alabama map from the New Universal Atlas, with a German title but English place names. A table at the left gives steam-boat routes from Mobile to Tuscaloosa, Montgomery and Pensacola. The map has nice, pre-Civil War detail of Mobile Bay, Pascagoula Bay, Pensacola Bay, Chocktawhatchee Bay, St. Andrews Bay and St. Rosa Island. There are only 50 counties shown, as opposed to the 67 present today.
