“VERMONT” New York: J. H. Colton, c. 1855. Engraved map with original hand-coloring. (Image: 14 ½ x 11 ¾’’)
This historical map is by one of the leading private map-publishing firms in the United States during the latter half of the 19th century. Vermont is shown with its counties in contrasting colors and most cities, towns, mountains, falls, islands, and Post Offices located.
Topographical features are well depicted with major land routes, water routes and rail routes identified. A very interesting and exceptionally detailed view of the state as it existed prior to the Civil War!
