COLTON, JOSEPH HUTCHINS. Map of the United States of America, the British Provinces, with Parts of Mexico and the West Indies. Hand-colored engraved wall map of the United States as far west as Texas. 4 sheets joined, 38x47 1/2 inches overall; varnish a bit yellowed, soft creases and edge wear, minor staining; original wooden rollers detached but present.

An unusual Colton wall map, well-detailed east of the Missouri River and showing Texas in a "stovepipe" configuration and a massive Nebraska Territory. We have been able to identify only one example of the same title and composition as the present, an 1847 edition sold here at Swann in 2002.
