School Atlas [to Cummings' Ancient and Modern Geography Improved]

Boston: Cummings & Hilliard, 1830. half leather. quarto atlas of the world with 14 maps, some double page, all engraved by H. Morse except the one for France, Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland for which H. Anderson is listed as engraver. No publisher is listed on this map. Bound in old half calf with marbled paper covered boards which could be original. Title page and other text pages are lacking. The covers and binding and contents are in good condition but do show wear and soiling. Pages darkened from age and handling. The maps are hand colored in outline and by areas as well. There is no title page or other text pages, thus the publication date is not given. Based on the USA map it is between 1821 and 1836 because Missouri is shown as a state while Arkansas is shown as a Territory and spelled Arkansaw. School atlases by this publisher typically have 8-10 maps. They published quarto versions and versions with increasing numbers of maps over time. Quarto copies with 14 or more maps are not found in available references. The hard covers may have been added a little later or this might have been a collection assembled by the publisher if it was never actually produced in quantity. Thus, it is a scarce copy in good condition. Good. Item #3320

Price: $608.00
