THE STATES OF OHIO INDIANA & ILLINOIS AND MICHIGAN TERRITORY. From the Latest Authorities.

Ezra Strong: NY 1835 Linen backed hand colored fold-out map, 16.5 x 22, folds down to 4x3, leather covers w/gilt lettering and gilt decoration, 4.75 x 3.25, covers well worn, rubbed, scratched, corners and spine tips bumped, upper spine tip has a couple of tiny tears, pencil and ink name and staining on front pastedown, map has several tears (a couple are cello tape repaired on reverse), shipping, sections missing out of margins but doesn't interfere with map, staining, soiling, creasing, a few small holes (some are due to worming), contemporary (?) ink names and addresses on reverse. According to Karpinski, map was published in 1833 but issued with the date of 1835. Shows not only the state capitals and county towns but the existing canals and proposed canals. As of 1830, the city of Detroit, located in Wayne County, had only a population of 2,222, the entire county only had 4,565. Still an attractive and desirable map. Scarce. Sold as is.
