A handsome, early map of Mississippi that details the county seats, towns and settlements, and river systems. County development is current to 1836, with the addition of Bolivar and Coahama counties in the western part of the state. The northern boundary with Tennessee shows both the "old state line" and "new state line." Not to be confused with the maps from the Comprehensive Atlas, this map is several inches larger and carries much more information. Engraved by Stiles, Sherman & Smith.


Condition: A+

A crisp impression on a clean sheet with original color.

Estimate: $150 - $180
