Note: 
First issued in 1861, then 1862, and last issued in 1863. Taken from Boye's map of 1828 and extensively revised. Another issue of 1862 has a strange note regarding the Burnett House (a hotel) in Cincinnati. "This is the only map used to plan campaigns in Virginia by Gen. McClellan. The brown cloth covers 19x13 (with tie remnants) are titled in gold "Lloyd's $100,000 Topographical Map of Virginia. Used by the War Department." A promotional broadside was put out early in 1861 announcing the first issue of this map and calling it "the only real good map ever made in America" (see our copy with "Lloyd's Map of the Southern States" - Newspaper format). Full color by county. Map is mounted on linen and undissected. Covers also West Virginia.
