Map of Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado Showing the Southern Portion of Dacotah
1867 - The Mitchell company was one of the first to try out the new technique of engraving on steel plates, experimenting with steel almost 20 years before the rest of the publishing industry. He was printing with steel in the early 1830's; the general switch to steel was approximately 1850. During the early years of the company, Mitchell published mainly maps and travel guides. In 1860, Mitchell started producing "Mitchell's New General Atlas", and Mitchell Sr. retired and turned the business over to his son of the same name. The New General Atlas was published until 1893. Today Mitchell maps are sought after for their fine engraving, bright coloring, and attention to detail. They are some of the finest maps produced in the 1860's. This map produced in 1867, has Mitchell's unique floral border, and beautiful hand coloring. This map details Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado and the southern portion of Dacotah. Counties, cities, towns, transportation routes, Native American lands and topographical features are illustrated. A very rare map!
