Unbound, colored engraved map, 16"x 13". Evenly toned and browned, ample margins; still bright and clean overall 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. While outside of the coastal areas there isn't a lot of detail, it remains a colorful and attractive map. Given the early date of the map, limited detail is not surprising. This map of Australia is from the rather scarce 1866 edition of Colton's General Atlas. Compared to earlier Colton maps of Australia, this map has somewhat more detail. Ristow 313-326.
