An antique map of the Maritime Provinces by J.H. Colton. In the mid-nineteenth century, the center of map publishing in America moved from Philadelphia to New York. The Colton publishing firm played a large role in this shift. This map of the New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island, with its fine detail, is a strong example of their successful work. The map includes copious information. This particular issue has the typical Colton decorative border.
