1866. · New York:
by Colton, G.W. & C.B.
Unbound, colored engraved map, 16"x 13". Some toning and aging, minor foxing in margin; overall bright and clean and in very good condition. Maps are wrapped with acid free board, or in rigid sleeves. 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 early map of Iowa is from the rather scarce 1857 edition of Colton's General Atlas. The map has decent color with a fair amount of detail of the counties in Iowa.
