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.
