Mitchell “County map of New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware.”


W.H. Gamble. “County Map of New Jersey.” County Map of Maryland and Delaware.”  Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell Jr., 1865. 11 1/4 x 13 3/4. Two maps on one page. Lithographed by W. H. Gamble. Hand color. Very good condition.


For most of the middle part of the nineteenth century, the firm founded by S. Augustus Mitchell, Sr. dominated American cartography in output and influence. This fine original antique map is from one of his son’s atlases. Towns, rivers, roads and other topographical information are clearly shown, and the counties are shaded with contrasting pastel colors.  A fine decorative border surrounds the map, and the whole effect makes for an attractive and historically interesting mid-nineteenth century map.
