Book Description New York: G. W. & C. B. Colton & Co., 1877, 1877. Folding lithographed map (17 x 25 inches) with original hand colour in full (some separations at folds). Original dark brown cloth, gilt (a bit rubbed). Rare pocket map version of Colton's map of Arizona and New Mexico, with parts of Nevada, California, the Mexican border, Kansas, Colorado, and Texas (western Panhandle and "Camp Stockton" and China Ponds to El Paso). Native American reservations, railroads (existing and proposed, including the Southern Pacific route), mining districts, forts, geological features, and many towns and villages are all shown. Although not shown on this map, peak production of the Comstock Lode in Nevada occurred in 1877, the year this map was published, with the mines producing over $14,000,000 of gold and $21,000,000 of silver that year. The previous year a rancher had found the Lake Valley silver deposits in Sierra County New Mexico, although the site is not marked on the map. Joseph Hutchins Colton had begun publishing maps in New York in the 1830s. Between 1831 and 1890, the Colton firm dominated American map publishing, although Colton had no formal training in geography or cartography; he began by purchasing copyrights of maps prepared by other individuals or companies, and his principal role was to manage the production and distribution of the maps. His first maps were drawn by the esteemed cartographer David H. Burr in the 1830s. By the 1850s Colton was also publishing guidebooks, atlases and immigrant and railroad maps. The firm was renamed G.W. & C.B. Colton in the 1860s when Colton was succeeded by his sons, George and Charles. Seller Inventory # 72map82
