Colton's Township Map of the State of Florida. Drawn, engraved, and published by G.W. & C.B. Colton.

New York: Colton, 1878. Engraved broadside map of Florida, 17 1/2 x 27 1/4 inches, the counties hand-colored in light pastel shades of green, pink, and yellow, the borders a heavier pink; southern Florida, including Dade and Monroe Counties, the Everglades, and the Keys, appears in an inset, 8 1/2 x 10 inches. Publisher's ad on front pastedown. Cover title: "Colton's Map of the State of Florida." This map was published and revised a number of times, 1868-1885; all of the various issues are scarce. Eberstadt 109, 48 (for the 1873 edition). Not in Servies (cf. Servies 5058 for the 1868 edition: "Other editions dated 1870-1875, some issued folded in cloth case"). This 1878 edition is not included in Phillips (which does describe editions from 1868, 1876, and 1882); it is described on OCLC, but without noting a location. Very good. Folded into a 12mo gilt-stamped brown cloth folder. (#6280). Item #58735
