Published by Samuel Augustus Mitchell, 1860
Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016
This wonderfully-detailed reproduction of "Map of the United States and Territories Together with Canada & c." was published in Philadelphia by S. Augustus Mitchell in 1860 for his New General Atlas.
It features early boundaries for the territories of Dacotah (sic), Idaho, Utah and Arizona. Wyoming does not appear, as it was still incorporated into Idaho Territory, while Arizona still includes the tip of Nevada.
An extensive railroad network is shown throughout the east, with the proposed Pacific Railroads, mail routes, emigrant roads and the Pony Express route shown in the west.
The insets feature Hampton Roads and Norfolk Harbor in Virginia and Pensacola Bay in Florida.
A decorative rose and flower vine border surrounds the map.
