A Topographical & Geological Map of the Coal Measures & of the Muriatiferous & Ferruginous deposits, In The Secondary Region Of The Valley Of The Ohio.
Sitting almost perfectly over the area that would someday be West Virginia, this rare early map looks at the geology and topography of this still primitive area. With a key for twenty one different symbols from water, sulphur and "petroleum" springs, to iron, lime and coal deposits, this map's unique quality is its focus on the geology and potential of the area. Spans from the Tenn.-North Carolina border up to the southern Bend of the Cuyahoga River in Ohio, reaching east to Juniata River in Penn.
Condition is good with significant off setting, and close lower and right margins, with a minor loss to the right edge. Image size is approximately 15 x 16.5 (inches).
