S. Augustus Mitchell. "A New Map of Maryland and Delaware"
Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, 1848. 11 1/4 x 14 1/2. Lithographic transfer from engraved plate. Original hand-coloring. Typical overall time-toning to paper. Very good condition. With inset of Baltimore.
The Mitchell map of Maryland and Delaware is typical of his excellent output. Topographical information, including towns, rivers, roads canals and so on, is profuse and clearly shown, and the counties are shaded with contrasting pastel colors. Since steamboats were the most glamorous and comfortable way to travel, the map includes the distances from Baltimore to points between that major city and Norfolk, Philadelphia, and Washington.
