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.
