An elegant example of S. A. Mitchell's detailed 1849 map of Connecticut. Centered on Hartford and Middlesex, this map covers the entire state of Connecticut extending eastward from Fairfield to Windham and New London. Two insets in the lower right detail the vicinities of Hartford and New Haven. The upper left quadrant a statistical table listing population in various towns, counties and eras. 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. Mitchell published this chart in his atlas from 1846 to the late 1850s before discontinuing the series and selling his map plates to DeSilver. This map was issued in the 1849 edition of the New Universal Atlas. It was the last edition of that atlas to be published by Mitchell prior to selling the plates and rights to the atlas to Thomas Cowperthwait in 1850.
