Maps and gazetteers provided information for those planning to leave for the new frontier, reassuring them that the new home had the elements of civilization. The map is drawn on paper, backed with linen. Prior to 1800 all paper was handmade from rags. Linen is a very durable fabric. It helps preserve the map and keep it flexible.
