An attractive and fascinating map of Pennsylvania from A Gazetteer of the State of Pennsylvania. At the bottom of the map is a key to symbols representing existing canals, proposed canals, railroads, turnpike roads, and common roads. This book contains detailed information about counties, cities, townships, towns, mountains, lakes, rivers, creeks, canals, railroads, and post offices. This octavo book, with full leather binding and gold tooling on spine, is clean and in very good condition. There are hints of hints of ex libris status. All in all, a lovely and informative map and book of the state.
