Map of the World on Mercator Projection, Exhibiting the American Continent as Its Centre.

New York: S. Augustus Mitchell, Jr., 1860. Folio (23¼" X 15", image area 18" X 14¼"). Hand colored. Very good. Faint age toning only. Item #45487

Really lovely and bright example of this well-colored world map, from the 1864 edition of "Mitchell's New General Atlas, Containing Maps of the Various Countries of the World, Plans of Cities, Etc." Interesting to see Alaska identified as "Russian Territ'y," but America's Alaskan purchase was a few years in the future! The decorative border is bold and clean. A centerfold image, thus bears single vertical fold (as issued).

Price: $150.00
