A rarely seen variant state of Colton's map of the North Pole or Arctic. Covers from Lake Baikal, the Hudson Bay, the British Isles and Kamchatka north to the Pole. Generally gives an excellent overview of the state Arctic exploration and discovery to about 1855. Though this map is not significantly different from earlier editions - the only notable plate change is the replacement of J.H. Colton's imprint with teh G.W. and C.B. Colton imprint - however it is unique in that color has been added. All previous editions of this map were in black and white. Prepared by G. W. and C. B. Colton as map no. 13 in the 1872 edition of Colton's Atlas of The World.
