Nice example of Morse's map of Mexico, colored by states, published in Charles W. Morse's General Atlas of the World, by Appleton & Company of New York.

The Morse family were the creator's of the cerographic printing process, which first appeared in their American Atlas and Cerographic Bible atlas in the 1840s. Prior to that, Jedidiah Morse, the patriarch of the family, was active in the United States publishing maps and geographies prior to 1800 and he and his family carried on the business for nearly 70 years. CW Morse's General Atlas of the World was the last great work by the Morse family, and the only large format folio size atlas published in the history of the family
