Scarce late double page version of OW Gray's map of Nebraska,which has not been significantly enlarged from its earlier editions.  Detailed antique map of Nebraska, colored by counties and showing townships, roads, railroads, towns, etc. 

The map shows Sioux County (1877), but pre-dates the 1881 annexation by Nebraska of a portion of what was previously Todd County, Dakota Territory. which would have included the Ponka Reservation and most of the Ponka River watershed and the creation of Brown County and Cherry County in 1883 and Garfield County in 1884.

The map includes detailed treatments of early railroad routes through the state.
