INQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM HOW TO ORDER

AUTHOR:

COLTON, G. W. AND C. B.

TITLE:

Colton’s New Township Map the States of Kansas and Missouri. New York.

CONDITION:

Full original color, 17 ½ x 40”. Ex-library copy, removed from cloth cover, but very good condition.

DATE:

1863

DESCRIPTION:

An excellent early map for rapidly developing Kansas and neighboring Missouri. A tremendous amount of detail is included for both states.

This is one of the earliest maps for Kansas after its western portion was organized as part of the Territory of Colorado in 1861. Kansas was admitted to the Union as a state in the same year. The new state’s expanding railroad network is shown in detail. The new counties located along the southern boundary of the state are still completely devoid of townships or settlement. Southwestern Kansas has yet to be divided into counties and is still so little known that only the most prominent topographical landmarks, such as the Arkansas River, are shown.

REFERENCES:

Not in Phillips.
