1857 Colton Map of New Brunswick and Newfoundland, Canada - Geographicus - Newfoundland-colton-1857
This is the uncommon 1857 issue of J. H. Colton’s map of Canada's Maritime Provinces, including New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Prince Edward Island. Covers all of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Prince Edward, along with a portion of Canada in the north and the Island of Anticosti. Divided and color coded according to province and country. Shows major roadways and railroads as well as geological features such as lakes and rivers. Like most Colton maps this map is dated 1855, but most likely was issued in the 1857 issue of Colton’s Atlas . This was the only issue of Colton's Atlas that appeared without his trademark grillwork border. Dated and copyrighted: “Entered according to the Act of Congress in the Year of 1855 by J. H. Colton & Co. in the Clerk’s Office of the District Court of the United States for the Southern District of New York.” Published from Colton’s 172 William Street Office in New York City, NY.
