Joseph Hutchins Colton was a prominent American mapmaker from 1831 to 1890. Born in Longmeadow, Massachusetts, he later moved to New York to found the J.H. Colton Company. He employed all the prominent cartographers of the day, and used quality papers and steel plates to produce a highly decorative line of maps, often hand colored.

We are pleased to offer original hand colored maps from Colton's important 1856 "Atlas of the World", covering both America and the rest of the world. Included are a Texas map with two inset plans for Galveston Bay and Sabine Lake showing roads and trails going into Mexico; Nebraska and Kanzas with an extra large Nebraska (no Montana and portions of Washington, Oregon, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin); a map for the Territories of New Mexico and Utah showing Fremont's 1844-45 routes; California with an inset of San Francisco and shows Atlantic and Pacific R.R. lines; Washington and Oregon Territories with extended land mass. Maps published by J.H. Colton can be found in Library of Congress, state collections, and university & museum collections.

Each single map measures 16 by 18 1/2 inches, with the double maps 18 1/2 by 29 inches. The condition is excellent, with no foxing or other stains, strong paper and bright hand coloring. They are excellent historic and decorative antique maps and a great addition to any household!
