Antique hand colored map of the United States, copyrighted 1874 and published by S. Augustus Mitchell in his 1874 atlas, with states and territories delineated by color, with "Dacotah" absorbing both present-day Dakotas. This map is similar to USA164, with the main difference being Wyoming Territory, which did not become a state until 1890, but Yellowstone was established in 1872 and is on this map. The Great Northern Pacific Railroad has progressed noticeably on this map compared to the 1868 map. Includes inset of the Island of Newfoundland, and showing detail of cities and towns, water bodies, roads, railroads, and many interesting notations regarding Native American tribes. Very good antique condition with mild toning, and an archivally repaired seam separation at bottom. Measures 13.25 x 21.25 inches to the outer edge of the decorative border.
