For most of the middle part of the nineteenth century, the firm founded by S. Augustus Mitchell dominated American cartography in output and influence. This fine map is from one of his son's atlases, and it shows North and South Carolina in 1867. Towns, rivers, roads and other topographical information are clearly shown, and two insets show Charleston and its harbor. The counties are shaded with contrasting pastel colors and a decorative border surrounds the map, with the whole effect making for an attractive mid-nineteenth century map.
