Note
Huge, large scale map of one of the early and important coal regions of West Virginia. Land owners' holdings are shown in color with dates of original patents (George Washington had large holdings here). Six sections show the amount and kinds of coal found at different parts of the valley. An inset map of West Virginia shows the current and future water and rail connections between the Kanawha Valley and Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. Several columns of text describe the geography, climate, and types of coal to be found. The sheer amount of information is impressive.

Swann." in gilt.
