A New Map of Michigan with its Canals, Roads & Distances (Map No. 25 from A New Universal Atlas. . . .)

Philadelphia: Carey & Hart, 1841. Unbound. Approximately 14” x 17.5” including the wide margins. Includes an inset map showing the western part of the Upper Peninsula and a distance table for Detroit Steam Boat Routes. Strong, clear image with attractive hand coloring. Very light soiling.

This very attractive early map of Michigan shows little development north of the lower two tiers of counties with only a few identified cities or towns: Benton, Coltrellville, Corunna, Flint, Grand Haven, Grand Rapids, Hastings, Howell, Mason Centre (no Lansing), McDougalville, Mt. Clemons, Niles, Palmer, Pontiac, Portland, Remco, Sagnaw, Saugatuck, Tomia Center, Utica, and Vemontville. Very good. Item #008763
