Orig. 1859 Colton's General Atlas W Beautiful Hand Colored Maps Of Us States Etc For Sale

Orig. 1859 Colton's General Atlas W Beautiful Hand Colored Maps Of Us States Etc

An original 1859 Colton's General Atlas with all of its hand colored maps which include those of all of the various then existing US states including the very desirable Texas, California and the rest of the west etc. TITLE: Colton's General Atlas Containing One Hundred And Seventy Steel Plate Maps And Plans, On One Hundred Imperial Folio Sheets, Accompanied By Descriptions, Goegraphical, Statistical, And Historical By Richard S Fisher M.D.AUTHOR: Colton, G. WentworthPUBLISHER: J.H. Colton And Company New YorkDESCRIPTION: With 102 pages of lithographed maps and plans, all but a few hand-colored, 6 are double-page (counted as 2 numbers) many with insets. Folio size 44.5 X 37.5 cm (17 1/2" x 14 3/4"), original boards stamped in gilt. The scarce 1859 edition of Colton's General Atlas, with maps of the various states and regions of the U.S. and the rest of the world. Among the more remarkable maps in this edition is "Colton's Territories Of New Mexico And Utah" which has Utah, New Mexico and Arizona parallel to each other, in that order, with Arizona named but only in ghost-like letters, all three stretching westward to the California border. There is a great double-page map of Texas, an interesting map of the North West with Washington including what was later Idaho and portions of Montana, and many other interesting configurations and features as the American West was gradually forming itself into its present familiar states.CONDITION: wear and soil to covers, spine with splits and detached front cover and several first few pages. Some wear and loss mostly confined to the margins on the first 20 or so pages with the rest of the atlas including all US maps and world maps thereafter being in very nice condition. The title page and the map showing the comparative size of rivers and islands of the world are in tough shape as is the map of Venezuela which has a piece gone from it at upper right and more soiling than the other maps and the Western Hemisphere circular map has a 3" tear from the margin. The map of New Mexico and Utah Territories has a minor 2" coming up from the bottom edge at left and some wear and soil to margins. The rest of the maps are generally in very nice condition with bright unfaded hand coloring and free of foxing etc (the hand coloring is much brighter in real life than my pictures would indicate as the photos were taken indoors with natural light). A wonderful atlas which is completely fresh to the market from an old local estate.

On Apr-27-13 at 21:14:09 PDT, seller added the following information:

A buyer on this item has retracted their offer and stated their reason for doing such was that I the seller changed the description. This is a COMPLETE LIE as no changes to the description or anything else to do with this listing were changed at any time up to me adding this post and I can prove it in that once a offer is placed other than using this box to add to the description the regular above description box becomes a restricted field within which no changes can be made and none were. The real reason for the retraction of their offer was most likely 1) to unfairly expose what the second highest buyers limit was and 2) post a complete lie to cast doubt about the quality of the goods and then possibly offer at the end using a different Id to obtain the item at the discounted / disparaged goods price. This type of behavior is why less and less better items are being offered especially by sellers like myself who offer good items at extremely low starting offers with and to think this venue expects sellers to pay 9% for this sort of nonsense after May 1st is down right hilarious.EdEdzhistoricalam
