Original color map lithographed by Charles Shober for Andreas' 1875 ILLUSTRATED HISTORICAL ATLAS OF THE STATE OF IOWA. The map is lithographed in contrasting shades of ochre. The map is highly detailed: in addition to cities, towns, roads, railroads, and rivers, there are pictorial representations of farm houses (with names of owners), churches, school houses, post offices, blacksmith shops, cemeteries, quarries, lime kilns, timberland, swamps, creeks, and bluffs. There is a decorative border around the map. On the verso [back side] of the map are black and white lithographed maps of Woodbury and Plymouth counties, each with the same details found on the recto [front side]. The decorative border from the recto is repeated on the verso. The color map is bright, attractive, and suitable for framing. The paper is very lightly toned and edgewear is minimal; some light soiling in the margins. Bookseller Inventory #
