Map of Mississippi from uncommon 1857 Colton atlas
Item Details
Description
Map of Mississippi from the very uncommon 1857 edition of Colton’s General Atlas. The 1857 Colton maps are easy to spot because of the unadorned frame surrounding the map. It is very different from the decorative border that is featured in most other Colton atlas maps. Colton maps were engraved using steel plates rather than wax engraving, which gives them a cleaner, more precise appearance. This map is very detailed in beautiful hand-colored pastels. It shows the breadth of natural water resources throughout the state. Shows cities, towns and villages, transportation routes, common roads, canals, rivers and lakes, and other geographical features. Tiny hole in left lower margin. Small tear at right bottom edge has been repaired. Three very tiny tears at bottom paper edge. Small spot at top just outside top frame. Still nice appearing map and nicely centered. 11.75 x 14.75

Reserve: $120.00
