In this “Statistical View,” published as a companion volume to his seminal Map of the District of Maine, Greenleaf attempted to provide a geographic and economic overview of Maine, which at the time remained a district of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Greenleaf focused on the interior portion of the District, believing it to be poorly understood and of great potential benefit to Massachusetts.
