This double-page map shows Colorado just prior to statehood. County configurations are current to 1870 with the addition of Bent and Greenwood from Las Animas in the southeast. The map displays major rivers, railroads and the progress of public surveys. A note along the Colorado/Utah border states "elevated plain, fertile, gently rolling, fresh water lakes and timber."
There are a few faint spots of foxing in the image and light toning along sheet edges.
