This is the second edition of Mitchell’s first Universal Atlas that was published in 1846. Mitchell had acquired the rights to the Universal Atlas in 1845 from H. Tanner who first published it in 1836. This Atlas contains the rare, highly-valuable, and one-of-a-kind map of Oregon and Upper California that covers the Mexican Territories that were ceded to the United States one-year later as a result of the Mexican American War. This Atlas is in it’s original condition and is 100% complete! All pages, spine, and cover are intact. This Atlas measures approximately 17-1/2″ x 14″ with heavy-weight paper pages each measuring approximately 17″ x 13″. The maps are in beautiful color and are all in very good condition with no tears or cuts, just some light to moderate age tanning and spots as you can see in the photos. The cover is 3/4 leather bound with marbelized end boards with heavily worn corners as shown in the photos. The spine is intact and all pages are secure. There appears to be a persons name written in pencil on the inside cover as shown in the photos. There are too many maps to photograph so please look at the Table of Contents in the photos to see a complete list of all maps. If you want to see a specific map, please contact me and I’ll try to send you a photo. In 2013 a 1848 Mitchell’s Universal Atlas was featured on the PBS Show “Antiques Roadshow”. That Atlas was in poor condition and was missing pages, but it will provide you some insight to the history and value of this Atlas. Please study the photographs carefully and ask questions if you are unsure about anything. DOMESTIC BUYERS Within the Continental U. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS Outside the U.
