    John Melish was a Scottish mapmaker that had a significant impact on early American cartography and produced number of import maps related to the young United States. This map for early and primitive Kentucky shows this recent addition to the US, its major towns, forts and roads. Gives particular attention to the river systems and tributaries, and their connections to the greater Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. A rare and focused map for just Kentucky.
