This guide to New York State is an impressive little book, the contents treating the subjects outlined in the title. Bristling with data, it includes many tables, remarks on methodology, and observations by the author on the difficulties that he encountered in this undertaking. "Contains information on canals" [Rink], as well as material on looms, tanneries, distilleries, breweries, hat factories, and other early New York business enterprises. This printing also includes, from pages 72-88, a Supplement of "new facts" which occurred while the book was "in the press."
