Kansas and Nebraska
1859 - Art Source International is proud to offer this map from the 1859 edition of Colton%27s General Atlas. Colton atlases, especially those from the late 1850%27s, have become increasingly rare. The General Atlas was the first single edition atlas published by the Colton brothers succeeding the expensive two volume Atlas of the World. These maps have the signature ¾ inch Colton border surrounding each map. The Colton firm refused to compromise quality, choosing to compete for sales in the finer quality international market rather than the cheap domestic one. Because of this, all maps were engraved by steel plates rather than by wax engraving which was the most common method used at this time. This map of Kansas and Nebraska is very detailed with identification of counties, cities, rail roads, common roads, rivers and creeks. Each map has beautiful muted red, green, tan, pink, and yellow hand coloring. [Attributes: First Edition]
