Reissue and updating of Melish's original map. Engraved by Edward Yeager (B. Tanner, the original engraver is not given credit). The map is the same base map as Melish's edition, with the addition of new towns, counties, roads, railroads, etc. There are two new tables listed in the lower right corner, on Public Works and the Coal Trade (replacing Melish's list of sources of the map). There was also an 1848 edition by Morris, which was very similar to the 1849. Full color by township with counties outlined. With black top and bottom rollers. Map is edged in silk.
