1848 · New York
The second of the Appleton northeastern guides, the first having been printed in the previous year. Howes does not record this printing; instead, Howes records the 1847, and an 1848 collating identically with the 1847, which has fewer maps than this offering. The maps-- which frequently show transportation routes, including rail and canal-- and text are an invaluable source for America's developing rail and steam technology.
