In addition to the Railway map mentioned below, the maps are the Environs of New York, Province of Quebec, the Saguenay River and Lake St. John, the Maritime Provinces, Provinces of Ontario, Lake Erie and Environs, Rocky Mountain Parks, Coast of British Columbia and Alaska, and a General Map of British North America.
