Originally published in 1987, this map guide shows county outline maps as the counties developed from 1790 to 1920. Displaying the maps at ten year intervals, the old county boundaries are superimposed over modern lines. The maps are grouped by state, and the states are listed alphabetically. Background information on the censuses is provided, and an appendix discusses the difficulties in mapping boundaries. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
