About This Item

1864 Colton Civil War ATLAS Color 25 MAPS United States EARLY Montana California

Joseph Hutchins Colton had begun publishing maps in New York in the 1830s. Between 1831 and 1890, the Colton firm dominated American map publishing, although Colton had no formal training in geography or cartography; he began by purchasing copyrights of maps prepared by other individuals or companies, and his principal role was to manage the production and distribution of the maps.

Colton's maps, including this one, were extremely popular in the 19th-century for their detail and durability. This Civil War-era atlas includes impressive, color maps of the United States. This atlas is notable for, according to Wheat, including the first map of Montana.
