Full Title Mitchell's Reference & Distance Map Of The United States. By J.H. Young. Published By S. Augustus Mitchell. Philadelphia: For Sale By Mitchell & Hinman, No. 6 North Fifth Street, 1834. Engraved by J.H. Young, F. Dankworth, E. Yeager & E. F. Woodward. Entered ... 1833 by S. Augustus Mitchell ... Pennsylvania ... (illustration) Designed by W. Mason. (inset) A General Map Of The United States with the contiguous British & Mexican Possessions. (with 12 additional inset maps).
Note The first edition. In wall map form. It is difficult to find any changes between this and the 1835 edition, although there probably are some. Ristow states that there was an issue of this map in 1834 without the word "Mitchell" in the title (see our copy #4843), and he does not mention this word appearing in the title until the 1835 issue. He also notes an 1834 issue of essentially the same map but with the title changed to "A New Map of the United States" (Karrow 1-1484 and our #4396). Insets show the United States, south part of Florida, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, north part of Maine, Rochester, Niagara Falls, Albany, Baltimore and Washington, Cincinnati, Charleston and New Orleans. With black top and bottom rollers. Full color by state.

Full Title A New Map of The States Of Texas & California, The Territories Of Oregon, New Mexico, Utah and the Regions adjacent. Compiled from the most recent authorities. Philadelphia: Published by S. Augustus Mitchell. 1852. Entered ... 1850, by Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co. ... Pennsylvania. (on verso) A New Map of Texas Oregon And California With The Regions Adjoining. Compiled from the most recent authorities. Philadelphia, Published by S. Augustus Mitchell, N.E. Corner Of Market & Seventh Streets. 1846. Entered ... 1845, by H.N. Burroughs ... Pennsylvania.
Note Later wall map version of the 1846 "New Map," with the 1846 map on verso. Both sides have the decorative borders not found on the pocket map issues. The western topography and political delineation has been completely redrawn in California, Utah, New Mexico and Texas, when compared to the 1846 1st edition. This map says entered in 1850, but we can find no record of an 1850 issue, only an 1851. However, the atlas map in the 1852 Universal Atlas follows this larger 1852 map (it is taken from the same plate) and it was in 1850 that Thomas Cowperthwait took over the atlas publication from Mitchell, and probably this map as well. So there may be an 1850 issue. Not seen by Wheat - Wheat 726 is the 1851 issue of this map as it appears as an inset (with an inset within it of the Gold Regions) in Mitchell's 1851 Reference and Distance Map of the U.S. (W.H. has a separate Pocket Map issue of this 1851 map without the Gold Region inset, the 1852 issue has towns added in the Gold Region that do not appear on the 1851 edition). The map still has the original table of "Emigrant Route from Missouri to Oregon" with distances. During restoration, when the linen was removed from the back of this map, we discovered the 1846 first edition printed on the verso. Apparently the printer reused some of the 1846 edition unbacked wall maps as stock for the 1852 wall map edition. The linen backing conveniently hid the old map.
