Genuine Antique Hand-Colored Map

1873

Maker: Colton.


Antique hand-colored map by Colton, 1873, with state of Pennsylvania showing townships, cities, towns, rivers, lakes, land forms, and railroads. Colored by town with dark border lines to indicate counties. 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 became the most common method used in the US. Good overall antique condition, paper is lightly toned overall with darker toning at the paper edges and some tears at the edges, priced as is. Measures approx. 16.5 x 26.5 inches.
