Undoubtedly one of the best, most detailed, early maps of Long Island. Although labeled a geological map, its hand coloring, detailing of roads, villages, communities, and other political information make it a desirable map. It covers Long Island and the rest of southern New York state, as well as Westchester and Rockland counties and northeastern New Jersey. At bottom right is a large inset of "New York Island". A huge map on two sheets joined, as issued.
Three small areas of toning, else very good. Folding, as issued.
