Description

This atlas is illustrated with hundreds of etchings on a wide range of geographical subjects, statistical tables, and smaller maps and plans. It is a smaller version of Colton's General Atlas with regional maps. A one-time effort, not reissued. However, 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. The general physical geography text is based on the Atlas of Milner and Petermann published in London. Overall the text is intended to be particularly readable.
