Mitchell's School Atlas.
Published 1871, Philadelphia by E.H. Butler & Co.
Complete as issued. Text in English. Complete with all hand colored maps (contents lists 34 maps, although printed on around 26 sheets).
Antiquarian 1/4 leather binding, pictorial paper covered boards.
Contains a full page map of Texas by itself. A scare year for this atlas.
This atlas is 150+ years old and shows some signs of handling and time.
Binding gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, several page corners creased in the past, internally book remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A book which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this atlas as it survives.
We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
