Fairly attractive and handlable atlas of this small east central Iowa county whose county seat is Toledo. Numerous large, detailed township maps all bright and lovely. First quarter consists of the Marshall County atlas, the remainder (called "Volume II") an "Atlas of the World (Latest Federal Census Edition)... Profusely Illustrated by George Wharton James and Alan H. Burgoyne." These relatively recent county atlases are rather uncommon and difficult to find in decent condition.
