Also notes many of the Islands in Boston Harbor including Moon Island, Spectacle Island, Thomson's Island, Long Island, Governor's Island, and many others. Ferry and steamboat routes are noted.

Very good. Some minor wear and verso reinforcement along original fold lines - especially at fold intersections. Folds into original cardboard binder.
