The maps are engraved by G.W. Boynton, except for Mississippi, which is engraved by S. Stiles, Sherman and Smith. Fielding Lucas drew, but did not engrave, the Delaware map. There was also an edition published in Philadelphia, with the same maps. In some copies the Iowa and Wisconsin map is labeled only "Wisconsin." See also our 1842 and 1846 editions, as well as the 1841 General Atlas of the World by S.G. Goodrich, with uses these Bradford maps, without the text. There is a beautifully illustrated, engraved second title page reading "An Illustrated Atlas, Geographical, Statistical and Historical of the United States And The Adjacent Countries, By T.G. Bradford. Engd. by Jas. Archer." Full hand painted color. Atlas is bound in half leather brown untitled cloth covers; spine is stamped in gold with "Bradford's Illustrated Atlas".
