 United States 

COLTON, J.H. [A two-sheet wall map of the United States]
Map of the United States of America, The British Provinces, Mexico, the West Indies and Central America, with part of New Granada and Venezuela. New York: J.H. Colton, 1853. Steel engraving with original hand colour. Two sheets conjoined, total 865 x 1075mm. A pristine example.
A brightly-coloured map of the United States surrounded by a decorative border of vines and grapes linking vignette scenes. Above the title is another vignette featuring a bald-headed eagle in front of a port, with a locomotive and a paddle steamer. Two other insets show the North Atlantic and the trans-Panama railway. On the map Oregon Territory is still coloured in its pre-1853 entirety, prior to the creation of Washington Territory, although 'Washington' is written across the top half. Usually these large Colton maps are found dissected an mounted on linen as a "case map ", however it is very unusual to find it in the original undissected format as this example.
