1866. · New York:
Beginning with J. H. Colton (1800-1893), the Colton family published atlases for over 30 years. Colton's Atlas of the World was first published in 1855 in a large two volume set. In 1857 it became Colton's General Atlas, and Colton's sons, George Woolworth and Charles B. would take over the business. This map of Persia and Arabia is from the somewhat scarce 1866 edition of Colton's General Atlas. In addition to Persia and Arabia, the map also features Afghanistan and Beloochistan.
