A simple, but attractive, map delineated by parish/county that was published one year before Arkansas' statehood. It shows good detail along the coast including marshes and bays, and depicts numerous towns and settlements. One railroad (the West Feliciana Railroad) is depicted running from St. Francisville, Louisiana to Woodville, Mississippi. Only a few settlements are noted in Arkansas.
