County Map of Minnesota and Iowa.
1881 (dated) 12 x 9 in (30.48 x 22.86 cm)
This is an attractive county map of Minnesota and Iowa, showing counties in light pastels, roads, rivers, and relief shown by fine hachures. By William M. Bradley, from his Bradley's Alas of the World for Commercial and Library Reference, 1881.
Bradley, Garretson and Co. (fl. c. 1880 - 1900) were prominent cartographic publishers active in the later part of the 19th century. Bradley acquired Samuel Augustus Mitchell Junior's atlas plates in the late 1880s which he used to publish his own version of Mitchell's atlas. The firm had offices both in Philadelphia, at 66 North Fourth Street, and in Brantford, Ontario.
