Full Title Map Of The Oil District Venango, Crawford & Warren Counties, Pennsylvania. 1864. Published by R.C. Root, Anthony & Co. 16 Nassau St. N.Y.
Note This is the earliest map of the Pennsylvania Oil District that we have seen. It predates the 1865 maps by Beers, Colton and Plumb, Townsend and Dale, Hunt, and Howe (1866). It is large scale and shows excellent detail. Individual wells are shown, and operating wells are distinguished from wells being drilled. An extension flap is attached to the upper left corner of the map showing the East Branch of Oil Creek. Folded into dark green textured cloth covers 18.5x10 with "Map Of The Oil District" in gilt. Not in Streeter (unusual because Streeter has all the other important Oil maps) or any references. Scarce.

Full Title Colton's Map Of The Oil District Of Pennsylvania, Comprising Part Of The Counties Of Crawford, Venango And Warren. Prepared by H.S. Plumb Civil Engineer. Published By J.H. Colton No. 172 William St. N.Y. 1865. Entered ... 1865 by J.H. Colton ... New York.
Note First edition, first issue. Streeter was unaware of the two issues of this map and we cannot find any other mention of them. Streeter's comments on the map ("This Colton map is almost certainly earlier than the Hunt or the Townsend & Dale maps, both also of 1865, and it is best for giving a general view of the oil region as first opened up and first developed") indicate that he probably had this first issue of 1865 and had not seen the second issue (see our # 4529) which shows more development. Full color by township. Without the original covers.
