Unbound, uncolored engraved map, 16 " x 13". Slight toning and aging, a little creasing; overall 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 is a relatively scarce and unusal map of lakes and islands in the eastern and western hemispheres from the 1857 edition of Colton's Atlas. While the map is partially colored, it provides considerable detail on the subject. Has a straight-line border. Ristow 313-326. (Inventory #: 106111)
