Colton's Illustrated Cabinet Atlas and Descriptive Geography. Maps - by G. Woolworth Colton. Text by Richard Swainson Fisher. New York: Published by J.H. Colton, No. 172 William Street. 1859.
Pub Note: 
A smaller version of Colton's General Atlas with regional maps. A one-time effort, not reissued. These maps are reused by Colton in some of his school atlases. The text by Fisher (minus the sections on the states and territories) is used later in Johnson's Family Atlas starting in 1861. General physical geography text based on the Atlas of Milner and Petermann published in London. Overall text is intended to be particularly readable. The atlas is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of etchings on a wide range of geographical subjects, statistical tables, and smaller maps and plans. Full color maps.
