Colton's New Topographical Map of the States of Virginia, West Virginia, , Maryland & Delaware and Portions of Other Adjoining States

New York: G.W. & C.B. Colton, 1879. Broadside map, 31 1/2 x 44 inches, with hand-coloring of the counties in light shades of pink green, and yellow, borders in heavier red, the whole map enclosed within a wide ornamental border. Cover title: "Colton's Map of the States of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia." OCLC does not record this 1879 issue (but locates a few copies of a number of other printings for this map, 1869-1876, and in the 1880s). Not in Phillips which does describe an 1862 issue, without "West Virginia," and an 1882 issue. A lovely example of the map, with no breaks at corners or folds and very scarce thus for such a large map. Folded into original gilt-stamped cloth boards (rubbed); publisher's advertisement on front pastedown. (#5326). Item #58330
