This is the uncommon 1857 issue of J. H. Colton's map of Northern Italy. It includes Lombardy and Venice, Sardinia, Tuscany, Parma, Modena, Lucca and the States of the Church. Also shows Corsica and parts of the Naples, France, Switzerland and Tyrol. Divided and color coded according to province, shows major towns and cities, roadways and railroads as well as geological features such as lakes and rivers. It offers fine detail throughout with elevation rendered by hachure. At this time in history, Italy was undergoing the process of Risorgimento, where the different states of the Italian Peninsula would be unified into a single state of Italy. Like most Colton maps this map is dated 1855, but most likely was issued in the 1857 issue of Colton's Atlas. This was the only issue of Colton's Atlas that appeared without his trademark grillwork border. Dated and copyrighted: 'entered according to the Act of Congress in the Year of 1855 by J. H. Colton & Co. in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the United States for the Southern District of New York.' Published from Colton's 172 William Street Office in New York City, NY.
