Georgetown And The City Of Washington : J. H. Colton

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An interesting and attractive detailed map of the United States capital city with its satellite suburb of Georgetown. Colton & Co was one of the best and most prolific of United States cartographic publishers producing atlases and separately issued travelling and wall maps of all parts of the growing United States and the World. Maps were typically, as here, set in elaborate strapwork or foliate surrounds. This map shows Washington in its linear plan and has inset vignettes of The Capitol, The Smithsonian Institute and the Washington Memorial. This example, although with the date 1855 in the imprint has the addition of Uniontown to the southeast, Washington and Alexandria railroad to the southwest and Arlington and Georgetown Heights to the west. A good example with tissue backed protected margins.
