Description

Scarce 1870 pocket map of Wisconsin by Silas Chapman. The map is considerably larger than other editions of Chapman's map. Hand colored by counties and showing townships, sections, towns, rivers, lakes, mountains, railroads, and a host of other details. There are huge counties in the north. Chippewa extends to Ashland and to Marathon. Marathon extends north to the border w/Canada. Oconto extends to the borders in the east and north and Marathon in the west. The southern part of the state is full of railroads, extending a far north as Fort Burough and Green Bay and in the west to Augusta. Most of the townships in the southern counties are named. Three diamond shaped holes have been cut into the map, the largest about the size of a dime. Usual minor fold breaks and a bit of browning along several folds. Repaired tear where map attaches to covers. Folds into 12mo brown cloth folder with gilt title. Paste down advertises Chapman's maps available for sale. A good example, priced at about 1/3rd to account for the condition problems. Still, a good example.
