The World On Mercator's Projection.


David Rumsey Map Collection,


"In outline color with some land masses in full color. Surrounded by drawings of cities, and sights such as the Pyramids at Giza and Niagara Falls. British Colonies are highlighted in red and steam routes to the Colonies in blue. Maps by J. Rapkin. The edition without the town plans. Date estimated. This copy has a few pages of the Index/Gazetteer, as issued, almost as a sample of the later edition with the complete gazetteer. Earlier editions have a second title page dated 1851, a view of the Great Pavilion opposite the ornamental title page, and an index sheet titled ""Directions to Binder - arrangement of maps"" (Huntington Library copy). Maps are hand colored with outline color, and bound in half leather marbled paper covered boards with ""Illustrated Atlas"" stamped in gilt on the spine."
