A wonderfully detailed early map of central Maine published in 1835. A notation on the map states: "Reconnoissance made in 1834 by Hartman Bache, T.E. & B.T. Major..." Another notation: "Outline drawn and corrected from Greenleaf's State Map of Maine by Lieuts. Ward and Cooper." The map, oriented with north to the right, includes the towns of Augusta, Waterville, Norridgewock, Solon and Bingham. In addition to part of the Kennebec River, it shows Dead River and the headwaters of the Penobscot. Numerous streams, ponds, hills, and other geographic features are identified.
