"Mitchell's School Atlas", Mitchell, Samuel Augustus
Period: 1860 (dated)
Color: Hand Color
10 x 12 inches
25.4 x 30.5 cm
A fine example of Mitchell's famous school atlas with 32 maps (some back to back) along with tables and statistics. Very clean copy with no notations except for a previous owner's name in pencil on inside cover. U.S. map with a "stacked" Arizona-New Mexico configuration, and nice map of Texas. Hardbound with pictorial paper over boards. Published by E.H. Butler & Co. Very fine example of this work.
Paper covers in surprisingly good condition, less loss to spine leather and some flyspecking. Maps very good, contents tight.
