-----------------------------

From the venerable Mitchell atlas, one of the most attractive atlases produced in the 19th century -- a visually stunning antique, hand-coloured city map of New Orleans, Louisiana. Shows wonderful detail of levees and train tracks.Text at the bottom states "Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1860 by S. Augustus Mitchell, Jr. in the Clerks Office of the District Court of the U.S. for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania".

The map has an intricate vine motif border, typical for Mitchell atlases of that era. Light foxing on the print, as well as either a printing blemish or a small ink mark near Magazine and Delord streets (visible in photo 4, bottom left quadrant). There is also slight waviness. but this should not be obvious when the map is properly matted and framed. Otherwise in very good condition. Blank on the reverse.

The full map is shown in the last photo. Other photos show details from the map.
