Dated 1854, this finely engraved map was published in the first edition of Colton's monumental world atlas. An attractive map with fine hand coloring and Colton's distinctive scroll-style border. The map extends to include the island of Corfu and in the extreme southeast is the Greek island of Anaphe.
Fine impression and original hand coloring on thick sheet with wide, original margins. A little marginal edge toning and a few tiny spots, still fine.
