This is an uncommon 1849 example of S. A. Mitchell's map of Missouri. Based upon the Tanner/Burroughs map of 1847, this map covers all of Missouri in beautiful detail. Notes towns, roads, counties, rivers, and other topographic features. The whole is engraved and colored in Mitchell's distinctive style with green border work and vivid pastels. Political 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.
