A New Map of Georgia with its Roads & Distances.
1854 (dated 1850)
14.5 x 12 in (36.83 x 30.48 cm)
A fine example of S. A. Mitchell's 1854 new map of Georgia. Through its elegant design, this map of Georgia centers our attention on the roads and railroads that crisscross the state. Steamboat routes and mileages are presented in tabular format in the lower left quadrant. The whole is engraved and colored in Mitchell's distinctive style with green border work and vivid pastels. Political and topographical features are noted and color coded with elevation rendered by hachure.
This map was prepared by S. A. Mitchell for publication by the Philadelphia firm of Thomas Cowperthwait & Co. as plate no. 20 in the 1854 edition of Mitchell's New General Atlas. Dated and copyrighted, 'Entered according to act of Congress in the year 1850 by Thomas Cowperthwait & Co. in the Clerk's office of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.'
