Description: Map. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Image measures 15.75" x 12.5".

Comments: This map of England shows capitals, cities, towns, railroads and canals. Counties are hand-colored and labeled with text fit into their individual shapes, giving the map a somewhat idiosyncratic look. At the top of the map, a small bit of Scotland appears, uncolored, with Edinburgh labeled in the map's pink border. The Scottish city is flanked on either side by insets showing the environs of Liverpool, at left, and London, at right. A small inset in the lower left of the map depicts the Scilly Isles. The map appeared in Mitchell's first edition of his seminal New Universal Atlas. It in good condition with very minimal chips or tears. Browned margins. Samuel Augustus Mitchell Sr. (1792-1868) 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. This map provides a condensed yet comprehensive view of mid-19th century England.
