Comments: This map shows the state of South Carolina in the middle of the 19th century. Published in 1857, it predates by only three years the state's declaration of its secession from the Union in 1860, the unofficial start of the Civil War. The state's counties are hand-colored, and cities, rivers, and railroads are all labeled. An inset in the lower left shows the Charleston Harbor. The map appeared in Colby's "Diamond Atlas" and is in excellent condition with full margins and no chips or tears. Very slight foxing in left margin not affecting the image. Charles G. Colby (1830--1866) was an American map-maker active in the mid-19th century who is known best for his miniature maps. His "The World in Miniature," otherwise known at the "Diamond Atlas,"focused on the western hemisphere. His main focus was the United States, and he produced individual maps for each of the states. The atlas also includes maps of the hemispheres, several thematic world maps, North America, Canadian provides, the West Indies, and Central and South America. This map belongs to a critical moment in American history.
