In the Volume the "Classes of Inhabitants" (for the year 1830) are divided into Whites, Free Blacks, and Slaves.


This very rare and highly sought after, Hand Colored, Folding Pocket Map of the United States is printed on VERY delicate paper stock. Overall the Map is in very good condition. The map is complete and intact, the hand coloring is bright and vibrant and the sheet is generally very clean with a small area of foxing in the area of Illinois and another in south central Canada. There are a small number of short separations at the fold lines, a couple of tiny holes at couple of the fold junctions and some light age toning along some areas of the fold lines. Overall the map is very well preserved and displays beautifully. The gold gilt lettered and elaborately blind stamped cloth covers are well preserved - clean and crisp with the gold gilt lettering being bright and bold and very attractive and with light edge wear to the full leather covered boards some fading to the spine and a partial split at the bottom of the spine.

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
