DESCRIPTION : THIS MAP CONCENTRATES ON VIRGINIA AND WEST VIRGINIA, DIVIDING THOSE STATES INTO COUNTIES, EACH SEPARATELY COLORED. ALL OF MARYLAND EXCEPT THE OCEAN PORTION OF THE EASTERN SHORE IS SHOWN IN BLACK AND WHITE. NO MARYLAND COUNTIES ARE DELINEATED, SINCE THEY APPEAR ON ANOTHER SHEET IN MITCHELL'S NEW GENERAL ATLAS, 1863, ENTITLED "COUNTY MAP OF PENNSYLVANIA, NEW JERSEY, MARYLAND, AND DELAWARE." THIS MAP IS SIMILAR IN DECORATIVE BORDER, STYLE AND PAGE DESIGNATION TO MAP # 363M5. THIS VIRGINIA-WEST VIRGINIA MAP IS NOT SIGNIFICANT TO A MARYLAND- CHESAPEAKE COLLECTION SINCE THE DATA ON THE MARYLAND SHEET IS MUCH MORE DETAILED.

EDITION & STATE INFO : NOT YET RESEARCHED.

HFC OWNERSHIP DATA : THE HUNTINGFIELD COLLECTION HAS A GOOD COLORED COPY OF THIS MAP WITH FULL MARGINS. IT HAS AN ACQ. # OF SW015-DUD AND A MDHR # OF MSA SC1399-601.
