We are excited to offer maps from the 1871 edition of Coltons Atlas of America. In our 25 years these are the first Colton maps from 1871 we have been able to acquire. 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 of Texas with an inset of the northern portion of the state is very detailed with identification of regions, important cities, rivers, lakes, mountain ranges, and railroad lines. Each map has beautiful red, green, tan, pink, and yellow hand coloring used to distinguish regions. ‘
