Scarce 1st ed. Tunison’s New Mexico, 1885
Item Details
Description
Brilliantly colored and elusive map of New Mexico from the first edition of Tunison’s Peerless Universal Atlas of the World. WorldCat lists the 1885 Tunison atlas as his first. Tunison's Atlas is a unique and interesting blend of styles, emulating the modern commercial publishers of Chicago (Cram, McNally) on one hand, and the hand-colored look of the still-active older publishers (Colton, Mitchell, etc.). Presented in vivid chromolithographic printing, the color areas are solid and even, much like the hand-colored maps of earlier publishers. This is why Tunison's maps are prized by collectors as excellent examples of a blended late 19th Century printing style. Shows Indian nations, topography, forts, railroads, water holes, mines, etc. A lovely map. Couple of minor spots in the margin. 9.75 x 12.125
