Boston: C.D. Strong, 1841. Folio. Illustrated with a lithographic vignette title-page, by B.W. Thayer, and 51 engraved maps, by T.G. Bradford and S.G. Goodrich, with contemporary hand-coloring, and engraved by G.W. Boynton; map of Mississippi engraved by S. Stiles Sherman & Smith; most maps dated 1838; hemisphere maps, and maps of South America, the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Europe, Asia, and Africa, dated 1841. Original three-quarter leather over brown cloth-covered boards, stamped in gilt, boards and extremities worn and soiled, boards warped; contemporary ownership inscription and label on front free endpaper; light to moderate foxing to prelims and most plates; 6 1/2-inch closed tear along upper fore-edge of blank facing plate "Plan of Washington..."; final map of the Pacific loose; offsetting from maps onto facing blank leaves.
A scarce atlas, containing a collection of 51 maps, including an early map of the Republic of Texas, as well as maps of the 26 states, maps of the territories of Wisconsin and Iowa, and plans of the cities of New York, Washington, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, and New Orleans. "This is the Bradford 1838 Illustrated Atlas, without the text and with the addition of ten maps: two hemispheres, South America, Atlantic Ocean, Europe (3), Africa, Asia, and Pacific Ocean. Why Bradford's name is dropped is a mystery, although Goodrich in 1842 issued a new edition of the Illustrated Atlas with Bradford that retains the text and adds the same new maps that are added here. However, many of the maps in this 1841 edition are somewhat different from the 1838 and 1842 editions, with the usual changes in counties, etc." (David Ramsey Map Collection at Stanford University Libraries P 6092).
