An excellent 1855 first edition example of Colton's map of Illinois. Like most of Colton's state maps, this map was derived from an earlier wall map of North America produced by Colton and D. Griffing Johnson. The map depicts the state of Illinois along with parts of neighboring Iowa, Missouri, Indiana and Kentucky. An inset in the lower left quadrant focuses on the vicinity of Chicago. The map also delineates survey grids and plats referencing the work of the U.S. Land Survey.
This map also identifies various forts, rivers, mountain passes, fords, and an assortment of additional topographical details. Map is hand colored in pink, green, yellow and blue pastels to define state and territorial boundaries. Surrounded by Colton's typical spiral motif border. Dated and copyrighted to J. H. Colton, 1855. Published from Colton's 172 William Street Office in New York City. Issued as page no. 44 in volume 1 of Colton's 1856 Atlas of the World.
