000Kentucky:
County Map of Kentucky and Tennessee, Mitchell 1867 - A handsome steel engraved and original colored map by S. Augustus Mitchell with his unique floral border, and beautiful hand pastel coloring of the counties. This map details the states of Kentucky, and Tennessee. Counties, cities, towns, transportation routes and some topographical features are illustrated. Special Note: 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.
Condition: Very good, wide margins, small pieces missing at top corner and bottom left and right on edge of margins, normal brown age coloring.
size 14.5 x 11.75 image.
