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.

I don't think I have ever before felt the urge to write to a business, but I wanted to let you know that I have been extremely pleased with everything I have received. I started acquiring older titles when I decided to read some of the early writings in my field. While I noticed that some books were available digitally, I quickly discovered that nothing compares to having the actual books in my hands. For me, they inspire a feeling of deep respect for the work of these past authors that just cannot arise similarly from an eReader or a PDF. All of the books I ordered have been beautiful, packed with obvious care, and shipped in lightning speed. I'm hooked! The next time I head downstate I will look forward to visiting your store in person! Best Regards - Lisa.
