Nice collection of maps by Mitchell representing the world and continents. The set includes two world maps, one map of each continent, and Oceania. The titles are: 1) The World in Hemispheres; 2) Map of the World on the Mercator Projection (double page, 18 x 14", toned along centerfold); 3) Map of North America…; 4) Map of South America…; 5) Map of Europe…; 6) Map of Asia…; 7) Map of Africa showing it most Recent Discoveries; 8) Map of Oceanica… All measure approximately as noted except the double-page world.
All maps are very good to fine. A couple with some marginal soiling or toning. World on Mercator's has a little centerfold toning. All have crisp impressions and fine original coloring.
