Note:
Shows roads suitable for bicycles marked in red. A very late Colton map - the date of 1892 is the copyright date; the map may be of later date, but no other date is indicated. The cover style and address of 312 Broadway is the same as the 1896 map of Staten Island. Printed outline color by township. The mustard cloth covers 16x9 are stamped with "Colton's Driving and Wheeling Map Of The Country Twenty-Five Miles North Of The City Of New York. G.W. & C.B. & Co. New York." in black; then repeated again below is "G.W. & C.B. & Co. New York". The map shows several "Colored Sett." which notation we have never seen before. A note in red above the title says "These maps are particularly intended for the use of Sportsmen, Wheelmen, and Driving Parties, and we respectfully request that any errors or omissions which may be noticed, or other Suggestions for their improvement, shall be at once reported to us, that they may be incorporated into future editions. We especially desire names of creeks and ponds and information respecting new roads, etc." There is a catalogue of Colton road maps on the inside front cover. A blue rubber stamp at top right reads "Supplied by Rand McNally & Co."
