A relatively uncommon and lovely map of the US, rich with topographical, railroad and canal details. Insets are: "Map of Oregon Northern California Santa Fe &c."; railroads between New York, Boston & Albany; between Philadelphia & New York; Philadelphia & Washington D.C.; canal/railroads between Albany & Buffalo. Nicely hand colored (state border outlines).
