An indispensable cartographic reference work for North American maps.

All maps are illustrated (11 in full color). 568 pp., hardbound maroon cloth with dust jacket.
The text block is a little loose, as is common with this edition, and there is light foxing on the fore-edge that does not appear on the pages. Covers have faint sunning along the edges, and the dust jacket has minor shelf wear and soiling.
