This is an authentic, antique lithograph map of the state of Illinois by Samuel Augustus Mitchell Jr. The map was published in Philadelphia as part of Mitchell's New General Atlas of 1860.
It is color coded by county and important travel routes, towns, and cities throughout. An inset map shows the city in detail as it was roughly 10 years before the Chicago Fire of 1871. Much of the lakefront would be built out upon the rubble and debris almost immediately following the fire. The map is surrounded by an elaborate floral boarder that distinguished Mitchell’s works from other map makers of his era.
Condition: Map is in A condition showing a fine printing with bold original color on clean paper.
