Item Details
Description
Heading:
Author: Mitchell, S. Augustus
Title: Mitchell's National Map of the American Republic of United States of North America. Together with Maps the Vicinities of Thirty-two of the Principal Cities and Towns of the Union
Place Published: Philadelphia
Publisher:Mitchell
Date Published: 1843
Description:


Folding map, 24¼ x 33½ inches, with full period color. With a secondary folding sheet measuring 25¼ x 34¾ inches, with lengthy table of statistics from the 1840 census, surrounded by thirty-two insets of American cities. Folded into brown blindstamped cloth boards, gilt cover titles, metal clasp, 7¼x4¼".



First pocket edition of an important map of the United States. The map was also published in the same year as a wall map on rollers, surrounded by the thirty-two inset maps of American cities, that are found here on a separate sheet. As with all of Mitchell's early maps of the United States, the main map extends no further west than the 95th meridian (eastern Texas). Two insets are "Map of the North-Eastern boundary of the United States According to the Treaty of 1842" and "Map of the Southern part of Florida." There is a "Population Table based on the Census of 1840" in the lower left. Rumsey lists editions of 1843, 1846, 1848, and 1850 in a wall map format, but no subsequent pocket map versions.

Condition
Covers worn; one side of the clasp lacking; map repairs neatly done but some loss of text; very good.
