Description: Map. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Image measures 14 3/8" x 11 7/16".

Comments: Wonderfully graphic and colorful map of Michigan amidst four Great Lakes. The map includes towns and roads, in addition to canals, drawn in blue, and railroads, drawn in orange. A small inset on the left depicts the western part of the state. Beneath the title, two tables list steam boat routes from Detroit to Fort Gratiot and Fort Howard. The map is in terrific condition, with only minor chips along the binding edge of the paper, outside the 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.
