Pub Note:
This is very much in the Andreas Minnesota Atlas style - Warner and Beers in fact collaborated with Andreas and did the coloring on the Minnesota Atlas. This 1876 edition bears little resemblance to the earlier 1871 edition by Warner, Higgins & Beers (see our #3749) which used entirely different maps and had no views. Bound in half leather dark brown cloth covered boards with "Atlas of Illinois 1876 illustrated" stamped in gold on the front and blind stamped on the back.
