The beautifully detailed and colored world map from the 1870 edition of Mitchell's popular New General Atlas of the world. Framed by the vine motif border typical of Mitchell maps of the mid-1860s to 1881, the map is a fascinating depiction of the mid-19th century world, with a strong focus on the Western Hemisphere. The oceans are crisscrossed by the routes of key voyages of discovery and exploration.
