“PLAN OF BOSTON” Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, Jr., copyright dated 1860 in the lower margin and published in 1863, from Mitchell's New General Atlas. Engraved map with exceptionally bright original hand-coloring.(Image: 11 x 9 ¼’’)
This map, with its highly ornate border, depicts the City of Boston, Massachusetts with many streets named. Gardens, railroads, ferries and several buildings are also identified.
The inset displays the “MAP OF THE Country around BOSTON Showing also its HARBOR & ISLANDS” with rail, neighboring cities and towns, and names the islands in Boston harbor.
A very detailed and attractive view of the city during the American Civil War.
