This is a nice example of S. A. Mitchell's 1849 map of Kentucky with three inset maps: environs of Lexington in the upper left quadrant, Falls of the Ohio River in the lower left, and the route between Washington and Clarksburg in the lower right. Steam Boat routes along with distances are presented in the map's upper right quadrant. 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.
