From the Map Collection. Map of Mississippi from 1850. Published on page 23 of an unnamed publication: Philadelphia : Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co. Map shows counties, towns, and roads. Includes table of steam boat routes and distances from Natchez to New Orleans and Natchez to Pittsburg. Longitude given in degrees west from Washington. "Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1850 by Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co., in the Clerk's office of the District court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania." [Apparently derived from the 1836 map of the same name by H.S. Tanner (see mus.map0494, see page number 23 on each map), but differences are noted on inspection.]
