Supplement To The Elmira Advertiser. Map Of Chicago Showing The Burnt District. The City Of Chicago, Illinois. Published By G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co. 172 William St. New York. Entered ... 1855 by J.H. Colton & Co. ... New York.
This map of Chicago first appeared in Colton's General Atlas of 1870 on the same page with a map of St. Louis. Here it has been used as a separate newspaper insert to show the area burned in the fire of October, 1871. The portion of the title "Map Of Chicago Showing The Burnt District" is colored in red and overprinted on the map for dramatic effect, as is the area on the map that encompasses the burnt district. A scarce piece of ephemera.

Watson's New County and Railroad Map of the Western States and Territories, With the Cities of New York, Chicago, St. Louis and San Francisco, 1874.

(with) 5 inset maps: City of San Francisco; City of New York to 110th Street; City of Chicago; City of St. Louis; War Department Weather Map.
4 inset city maps and a War Dept. Weather Map. This is Watson's Western States Map in a new configuration with city plans - in order to make it a companion to the Railroad and County Map of the U.S. and Canada, which came with it, also dissected, with "United States" on the covers (see #2540.000); this map has "Territories" on the cover. Above the title is an explanation of the "American System of Weather Signals." The Chicago map shows the Burnt District in red. Lots of useful text spread around, in the classic Watson manner.
