This impressive map of Bergen County, New Jersey depicts the county's townships and boroughs in remarkably vivid colors. A short newsprint text praising the map has been glued onto its lower right-hand portion. The map is highly informational and depicts railroads both electric and steam, public roads, and elevations. The index also includes churches, schools, cemeteries, and meadows. The map is in good condition, with some tears along the folds, a crease in the lower left portion, and minor browning throughout. The coloring, however, remains exceptionally brilliant. Elisha Robinson (1832-1912) published a number of detailed, general purpose maps, including comprehensive atlases of Kings County, New York and Essex County, New Jersey. This library edition was printed in Philadelphia by A.H. Mueller.
