Publication Note: The rarest and most attractive of Cram's atlases. The maps are large folio, with hand color, taken from the same plates as Cram's pocket maps of the same date (or vice versa). All maps are on the same scale, 19 miles to one inch. This issue is five years earlier than the earliest (1880) shown in U.S. Atlases. Later editions were 1878, 1880, 1881, and 1885 (which may be smaller). After 1885, Cram discontinued this atlas and concentrated on the mass produced "Unrivaled Family Atlas" and the "Standard American Railway Atlas." All maps with full hand painted color except for the Rand McNally foldout map which has printed color. Bound in half leather dark brown cloth covered boards embossed with title "The Cram Atlas Company's New Commercial Atlas. Index Page 2." in gold.
