Literature

Rumsey 0186; Streeter sale 6:3919 (1st edition)

Catalogue Note

Second edition, published the same year as the first, of a "large scale map with good detail on the oil discoveries on the Little Kanawha River in West Virginia and Buck Creek in Ohio. It has an unusual look for a Colton map, indicating it may have been drawn by someone outside the Colton firm" (Rumsey). Surprisingly uncommon.
