Art Source International is proud to offer this map from the 1856 edition of Coltons Atlas of the World. Colton atlases, especially those from the 1850’s, have become increasingly rare. These maps have the signature 3/4″ 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 inexpensive 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 is very detailed with identification of provinces and or regions, cities, towns and villages, transportation routes including rail roads, common roads, canals, rivers, lakes, and mountain ranges. Each map has beautiful muted red, green, tan, pink, and yellow hand coloring. These are the only Colton maps we have encountered with outline color. ‘
