MELISH, JOHN. A Military and Topographical Atlas of the United States. 5 engraved folding maps, hand-colored in outline, and three engraved single-page plans. 8vo, 210x130 mm, original 1/2 red roan over marbled boards, a trifle rubbed; minor toning and offsetting, maps separating at folds as usual (in some case substantially separated, but in all cases reparable), Detroit River map loose. Inscribed "W. Lee" on front cover. A very nice example but for the usual faults. Phillips, Atlases, 1346. Philadelphia, 1813
