A beautiful example of Colton's 1857 map of New Jersey. Covers New Jersey in full as well as parts of adjacent states. Like most of Colton's state maps, this map is largely derived from an earlier wall map of North America produced by Colton and D. Griffing Johnson. Colton identifies various cities, towns, forts, rivers, rapids, fords, and an assortment of additional topographical details. Map is hand colored in pink, green, yellow and blue pastels to define county and state boundaries. Surrounded by a simple line border that Colton introduced in 1857 and ran through 1859. Dated and copyrighted to J. H. Colton, 1855. Published from Colton's 172 William Street Office in New York City. Issued as page no. 21 in George Washington Colton's 1857 Atlas of the World .
