Pub Note: 
Mitchell's first atlas, published in the first year of Mitchell's map publishing career. Mitchell purchased the plates for this atlas from Anthony Finley, who used them previously in his 1826 edition of his own atlas of the same title, "New American Atlas" (see our # 0278, 0279). Mitchell reissued the atlas with Mitchell's imprint on all the maps, with updating on the maps, and with new borders for the maps. This form of the atlas (folio) is most rare, with no copy in the Library of Congress and only two copies located by LeGear in her "American Atlases" bibliography. Dealers note only one copy for sale or at auction in the last decade. The maps included in the atlas were produced by Mitchell primarily as pocket maps and this explains the rarity of the folio atlas. Maps in full hand painted color. Atlas bound in half leather marbled paper covered boards with red leather label stamped with "American Atlas" in gilt.
