Maps included in Meyer’s atlas were very skillfully engraved so that roads, rivers, places names, and topographical features are clearly legible.

Across the top is a scale of distances from major Ohio cities. 

Engraving with hand coloring.

Very good condition overall with minor damp staining in margins, beyond plate.
