Description

Dimensions (H/W) 57 x 55 cm

Original gray printed folder with 4 page catalogue of Colton’s Road Maps inside the front cover. The map is printed in red, black and blue showing roads and rivers and is detached from the folder. This was among the last of Colton’s publications. Seeing the map and the very sparse catalogue shows how far this one-time giant in American cartography had fallen since the retirement of J. H. Colton in 1864. The elder Colton died in 1893, shortly before this map was published. The latest Colton publication we could find is from 1897.
