Publication Author: Goodrich, S.G. ; Bradford, Thomas G.

Publication Date: 1841

Publication Note: With an engraved title page. This is the Bradford 1838 Illustrated Atlas, without the text and with the addition of ten maps: two hemispheres, South America, Atlantic Ocean, Europe (3), Africa, Asia, and Pacific Ocean. Why Bradford's name is dropped is a mystery, although Goodrich in 1842 issued a new edition of the Illustrated Atlas with Bradford that retains the text and adds the same new maps that are added here. However, many of the maps in this 1841 edition are somewhat different from the 1838 and 1842 editions, with the usual changes in counties, etc. With full hand painted color, atlas is bound in half leather black cloth covered boards with "A General Atlas Of The World With A Separate Map Of Each Of The United States" stamped in gilt on the front red leather label.
