This map was reduced from Thomas Gordan's important map of New Jersey. County configuration extends beyond the 1838 copyright date to include Mercer and Hudson counties, established in 1839 and 1840, respectively. The map identifies counties, county seats, canals, wagon roads, early railroads, and more. Engraved by G.W. Boynton. Issued in Bradford's A General Atlas of the World, which is larger and more detailed than Bradford's earlier Comprehensive Atlas.
