Samuel Clough's atlas contains manuscript maps showing the street layout and property ownership of 55 blocks of Boston neighborhoods, based on the Direct Tax Census of 1798. Included is a color-coded drawing of Shawmut Peninsula on the front leaf. Clough planned to publish a topographical history of Boston, but never finished it.
