The maps are better engraved than Colles, in a style closer to the English road books of John Cary (see our 1790 copy). Descriptive text precedes the maps, describing the routes and places of interest. Smither engraved one map, I. Draper, two. The rest by Harrison & Shallus. See "New Jersey Road Maps" by Howard Rice.
