This uncommon map was published in Atkinson's Casket magazine. It is beautifully colored and boldly engraved. It covers all of Ohio and part of western Pennsylvania to Brookville. Colored key to canals, railroads and other roads. Published by S.C. Atkinson. Engraved by J. Yeager who also engraved many maps for Lavoisne in the same lovely style. The Casket was a small publication with only 1500 subscribers, making this map particularly rare. In 1840 George Rex Graham combined the Casket and Burton's Gentleman's Magazine to form the Graham Magazine which continued to employ colorful engravings in the form of women's fashions.
Beautiful original hand coloring and bold engraved lines on thick paper. A little watercolor running at upper right, else fine.
