This is an authentic, antique map hand-colored map by J.H. Colton featuring Florida in the mid-nineteenth century. Railroads, canals, towns, villages and forts are depicted as are geographical and topographical features. There is little development of any shown within southern and central Florida, save for a few small forts. In the most southern portion, the Everglades are depicted with several islands noted within. This map does an excellent job illustrating the relatively unknown wilderness that was the Everglades of the mid-19th century.

In the lower left quadrant there is a detailed inset map of the Florida Keys.

Decorative scrollwork border.

Condition: This map is in B+ condition with full margins and some toning on the margins.
