Description

Scarce large format map of Michigan, published by Asher & Adams.

The map is hand colored by counties, but its primary function is to illustrate railroads.

The map shows the various train lines, counties, townships and other points of civilization and development. Post offices are also located.

One of the most interesting large format commercial maps of Michigan of the early 1870s.

Condition Description
Original hand-color. Minor discoloration at centerfold and in the margins.
