Florida, Colton 1855 - A
beautiful engraved and hand colored first edition example of Colton's
map of Florida. Like most of Colton's state maps, this map is largely
derived from an earlier wall map of North America produced by Colton
and D. Griffing Johnson. In this particular case, Colton has augmented
his map with the plat work done by the Florida branch of the U.S. Land
Survey. This map shows counties in pastel colors and identifies various
cities, towns, forts, rivers, rapids, fords, and an assortment of
additional topographical details. An inset in the lower left quadrant
details the Florida Keys.
Condition: Very good, wide margins, no
folds browning on edges, small water stain at top left and some light
foxing into image.
