WALL MAP - Eastern US. Mitchell
Item Details
Description
Eastern United States. Samuel Augustus Mitchell, Mitchell's National Map of the American Republic or United States of North America, Together with Maps of the Vicinities of Thirty-Two of the Principal Cities and Towns in the Union, 1846 (dated). Hand Color. This is a very nice wall map that was drawn by J.H. Young and engraved by J.H. Brightly. It extends into Texas, Indian Territory, Iowa, and Wisconsin with a large unorganized area to the west labeled Dacotah or Sioux. Large insets within the map include the new State of Texas (with its largest borders), the southern tip of Florida, a "Map of the North-Eastern Boundary of the United States according to the Treaty of 1842" which details the Webster-Ashburton Treaty, and another detailing Oregon Territory which shows the territory extending well into Canada. The map is very detailed with hundreds of place names, plus roads, villages, railroads, ports, etc. A table gives the 1840 population for 120 cities and another gives the states' population of Whites, Free Blacks and Slaves. The state of New Hampshire is listed with only one slave. Surrounding the map are 32 city plans which itself is contained with a wide decorative border. The map is still attached to its original wooden rollers. This large wall map should not be confused with the smaller (24 x 34") and more common map with the same title.
Condition
The map is overall very good with the varnish only mildly darkened (a common occurrence with wall maps). There are minor surface abrasions in the image, some tiny edge chips and tears along the sides of the sheet, and a crack confined to the top blank margin. Rollers are attached, but both are loose on the left side. Grade: B+
