Description: Map. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Image measures 11 1/3" x 14".

Comments: Beautifully detailed map of North Carolina divided into counties. The map delineates towns, waterways, railroads, and major routes, as explained in a small key at the bottom center. Canals are highlighted in blue and railroads in orange. Also included are insets of Craven and the Gold Region, as well as a profile of the "Dismal Swamp Canal" and a table of distances. The map is in good condition, with only slight margin staining and a small chip on the right margin. Samuel Augustus Mitchell Sr. (1792-1868) published this map as part of the first edition of his seminal New Universal Atlas. Mitchell is one of the pioneers in American cartography of the 19th century and led the conversion of engraved map plates to more affordable lithographic plates.

Thanks for the note. I'm actually in NY for a few days and was hoping to get there but have to head back tomorrow. I've been stopping by the Argosy for over 60 years starting when my mother would take me there after shopping at Bloomingdale's and lunch at a long gone restaurant on the east side of Lexington between 58th and 59th that was torn down to make way for Alexander's department store; that is gone too, of course. - Peter H.
