Genuine Antique Map


Maker: Colton.


Antique hand-colored map by Colton, 1855, with state of Indiana showing townships, cities, towns, rivers, lakes, land forms, and railroads. The Colton firm refused to compromise quality, choosing to compete for sales in the finer quality international market rather than the inexpensive domestic one. Because of this, all maps were engraved by steel plates rather than by wax engraving which was the most common method used at this time. Very good antique condition, paper has few spots mostly outside margin, approx. 16 x 13 inches.
