Additional Details

A major draft of the Garden State - compiled by state geologist William Kitchell as an update to Thomas Gordon's first official map of New Jersey (1828). The map's considerable size and accuracy are balanced quite well on the aesthetic end, including two dozen inset maps and vignette views of local towns in the surrounding areas and the whole enclosed by a robust foliate border design.
