Catalogue Note

A SUPERB COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST WALL MAP ISSUED BY MITCHELL, and his first fully original cartographical publication. Rumsey points out that Ristow is mistaken in claiming that counties are delineated and numbered in all versions of this map: the present edition, "the first, does not, thereby eliminating the index of counties and thus showing more of the western territory."
