Nice example of Cowperthwait's map of NC, with insets of the Gold Region (centered on Cabarus and Montgomery Co) and the Neuse River and New Berne. Shows towns, roads, railroads, rivers, mountains, lakes, creeks, canals, etc. Canals are noted in red and rail lines and proposed rail lines also shown. The map was first issued by HS Tanner and appears in various formats until the late 1850s. The history of North Carolina and its counties from 1830 to 1860 can be tracked through the various editions of this map, as the plate is re-engraved by Tanner, Mitchell, Cowperthwait, Desilver, etc. Includes a table of distances and profile of the Dismal Swamp Canal. Gorgeous example with wide clean margins.
