Pub Reference:
P771,1379a; Ristow p.106.
Pub Note:
The first edition, with no date on the title page and the copyright dates on the maps running from 1831 to 1835. This issue is probably earlier than the LOC copy - the LOC copy has most of the pages numbered, while this copy has only a few pages numbered (and the numbers there are do not always correspond to the index numbers). Ristow states that Burr completed only eight of the 63 maps by 1832 and was then unable to complete the project because of his appointment to the U.S. Post Office as topographer; the atlas was completed by Illman and Pilbrow and issued in 1835. Burr is given credit on the title page, and the entire group of maps is in his "style" so we can assume he played at least a supervisory role in the production of the remaining maps. This copy is all original with half leather brown cloth covered boards and gilt stamped title "The Universal Atlas" on the front board, and tissue between each map. Full color.
