Note:
Full color by county. Hand colored. Prime meridians: Greenwich and Washington. This is a small version of Burr's large New York State map (see our #109), with only 2 of the larger map's 5 inset maps. Otherwise, it follows the larger map rather closely, with less detail. Entered in 1836, presumably making this a later issue. Folded into dark green cloth covers 12.5x8 with "Burr's Map of the State of New York Published By J.H. Colton & Co. New York" in gilt. David Rumsey Collection copy has: several manuscript notations and updating of the railroad lines. Signature of Henry G. Hubbard, Utica, N.Y. inside front cover.
