MITCHELL'S NATIONAL MAP OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC OF UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA. TOGETHER WITH MAPS THE VICINITIES OF THIRTY-TWO OF THE PRINCIPAL CITIES AND TOWNS OF THE UNION
Philadelphia: Mitchell, 1843. Bound into original 12mo. black morocco boards, elaborately stamped in gilt with rising sun, eagle, and globe motifs, with original brass clasp. Very good. First pocket edition of an important map of the United States. The map was also published in the same year as a wall map on rollers, surrounded by the thirty-two inset maps of American cities, that are found here on a separate sheet. As with all of Mitchell's early maps of the United States, the main map extends no further west than the 95th meridian (eastern Texas). Two insets are "Map of the North-Eastern boundary of the United States According to the Treaty of 1842" and "Map of the Southern part of Florida." There is a "Population Table based on the Census of 1840" in the lower left. Rumsey lists editions of 1843, 1846, 1848, and 1850 in a wall map format, but no subsequent pocket map versions. RUMSEY 2290. STREETER SALE 3861. RISTOW, p.310 (ref).
