A wonderful post -Civil War Atlas with 41 double-page lithographed nicely colored maps -- most being county maps of US States and a geological map of the US is also included. While Alaska is featured as a Territory, Hawaii is not as this map pre-dates that period. Nice details of towns and rail road lines. There is a nicely detailed statistical section focused on population. Finally, there are 5 pages of advertising. Published in New York.

Cover and spine are mostly detached and are worn. Maps are very good, with expected level of age toning / browning. Some maps are detached. Northern California / Nevada are missing. The index and statistical information section do not fully match (unclear if by intent).
