Massachusetts.

(North America, United States, New England, Massachusetts, Railroads, Canals, Early American Cartography).

Issued 1835, Boston by Bradford for his "Atlas of Universal Geography".

An increasingly uncommon early 19th century American produced and engraved map with original outline hand color.

The key shows finished railroads, chartered and proposed.

Bradford maps of this decade are characterized by an almost primitive engraving style, unique to this era of cartographic production in America.

Nice looking example, light old damp staining to sheet which is easy to miss, overlook or forgive visually, pleasing age patina, any minor age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.

Sheet Measures c. 9 3/4" H x 12 3/4" W.

Engraved Area Measures c. 7 3/4" H x 9 3/4" W.
