This detailed map of New York features towns, cities, roads, and nice topographical detail. County configuration is current to 1815, as Hamilton has not been organized yet. Lake Ontario and part of Lake Erie are shown. Place names line the Canadian coast of Lake Ontario. Strangely enough, Vera Cruz Mexico is located in Oneida County. Drawn by Samuel Lewis and engraved by H.S. Tanner. Lucas' General Atlas is known as one of the finest general atlases produced in the U.S. at the time, due to the high quality paper, superior engraving quality, and attractive coloring style.

References: Phillips (Atlases) #3542-40.

Full original color with light toning and soiling.
