Note:
The first edition. This differs from the later editions in not having any inset maps of cities and the Florida peninsula. There are far fewer towns and counties in the mid west and west. The Statistical Table is present under the title, but the two tables of towns are not present on the left side of the map. All in all, this has the look of a preliminary edition, with much information left out that appears in edition immediately following this one. Nonetheless, it is still a marvelous map, given its origins in Reading, Vermont. With black top and bottom rollers and outline color by state.
