New York: S. Augustus Mitchell, Jr., 1880. Folio (12¼" X 15¼", image area 11½" X 14"). Hand colored. Very good. Mild age toning. Item #47437
Attractive hand colored map of the 32nd state, from the 1880 edition of "Mitchell's New General Atlas, Containing Maps of the Various Countries of the World, Plans of Cities, Etc." The 1862 printing of this map came just after Minnesota statehood (1861), and Minnesota's capital city (St. Paul) was such a small metropolis that it didn't warrant the inset that Mitchell state maps usually accorded each capital or largest city -- and even twenty years later the state is given no inset map. Nicely colored and with a large floral border.
