Note:
Also published by Holmes Harrison & Co., London. Many changes from the 1861 edition in the west indicate that the 1861 edition was hurriedly put out without filling in all the topography. Under the title is a listing of the Slave States with the Note: "The States Marked thus * Claim to have seceded from the United States." Loss in the top four inches of the map, rebacked. Printed by T.P. Wagner, Philadelphia, who may have added the topographical information. This is the third Smith edition, after the 1861 and the early 1862. With black top and bottom rollers. The United States is panted in full color by county; Mexico by state. Shows settlements, transportation routes, and county boundaries.
