Description

First Edition.

One of the more attractive and differentiated American atlases of the 1860s. Schonberg favored heavy coloring, and in some cases loose cartography.

The map of the West is interesting for its very large Idaho Territory, which at the time included Wyoming.

Both the atlas and the maps from the atlas are quite scarce; we have only offered one before, the map of Michigan.
