Boston And Adjacent Cities : J. H. Colton

recent arrival
An interesting and attractive detailed map of one of the United States' oldest cities, Boston. 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 Boston with its surrounding towns and regions including Cambridge, Charlestown, Roxbury and so on. Of particular interest is the reclamation of land from marsh and swamp achieved during this period with the Back Bay area beginning to be laid out and with the links by bridge and railroads from the hub to the outlying developments - an amazing example of engineering ingenuity. A good example with tissue backed protected margins.
