Detailed Product Description
New York, J.H. Colton & Co., 1855. The approximate size of the map is 16 x 13 inches - approximately 16 x 19 inches overall. May have edge chips or tears and/or a missing corner. These could be easily trimmed off or be covered by matting. Near Fine condition.

Antique map of Switzerland probably from the 1855 edition of Colton's Atlas of the World. Colton atlases, especially those from the 1850s, have become increasingly rare. The Colton maps were engraved by steel plates rather than by wax engraving, which was the most common method used at this time. These maps are very detailed in beautiful hand colored pastels, and feature Colton's signature 3/4 inch decorative border. This map shows regions, cities, towns and villages, transportation routes, common roads, railroads, canals, rivers and lakes, and other geographical features. Map would make a great decoration for your home or office. 

Rare maps, art and charts cannot be shipped with books as they do not qualify for media rate. An additional postage charge will be requested for sending them in a sturdy mailing tube.
