This is a hard to find and much sought after version of this atlas and is full of interesting information. 24 of the 110 maps are double page and many include insets. Nearly all of the images are in full, printed color, with only the city maps in black and white. Also featured in this example is a 3 page section of postal information, a 7 page railroad index and some amusing advertisements in the front section of the atlas. Maps of note include: Indian and Oklahoma Territory, Utah Territory, Texas, and British America. A rare edition of this atlas that is certainly worthy of restoration. Hardbound in brown cloth with full gilt titles on front cover and spine. 351pp. Folio.
