VERY NICE 1856 Colored Map PHILADELPHIA Colton's Atlas Of The World
Up for sale is a great, colored, antique map of the city of "PHILADELPHIA". This map is one page and measures approximately 15 x 18 inches, including the border area. The map has fantastic coloring to it. This map is from "COLTON'S ATLAS OF THE WORLD - Illustrating Physical And Political Geography" by George Woolworth Colton. Published in 1856 by J. Colton And Company, New York. These maps exhibited true representations of all works of internal improvement, completed and projected at the time, such as the lines of railroads, canals, and other means of intercommunication; of the public surveys made under the authority of the States and Governments; of the routes of travelers in the less explored parts of the earth; and also a great mass of other pertinent information valuable to all who are interested in the development of the countries delineated, or in the progress of civilization and industry. The map in generally Very Good condition (not perfect but very nice). Dark stains around the border, however, they don't affect the map, except for the very right portion above the Delaware River. Light browning in other places, and some small tears at the edges.

The map is blank on the reverse side. There is a torn edge down the left hand side from being detached from the Atlas it was originally bound in. There are some creases in the paper, but they do not appear to affect the map, as well as some other small stains here and there. Other dings here and there, as well. This antique map is a great piece of history and it would look very nice when matted and framed!
