Here is Mitchell’s 19th Century Tourist guide to the United States including the scarce accompanying fold out map. Mitchell’s works and their many related works over the next fifty years laid the foundation for the road maps of today.

The first half of the book includes an index to identify cities, towns, rivers, and other locations providing their location to be found on the folding map using the grid printed on the margins of the map. The last half of the volume includes a general view of the United States with information of Soil and Productions, Minerals, Indians, Agriculture, Commerce, Fisheries, Revenue and Expenditures, Public Debt, Army, Navy, Government, State Governments, Education, Religion, Post Office, Rates of Postage, Public Lands, Populations, Apportionment of Representatives and a brief description of the various States and Territories form New York to Missouri Territory with Stage Routes as they existed in 1838.

This volume is best known for the folding map that is often lacking. The map is titled: “Mitchell's Map Of The United States Showing the Principal Travelling, Turnpike and Common Roads; on which are given the Distances in Miles from One Place to Another; Also, The Courses Of The Canals & Rail Roads Throughout the Country, Carefully Compiled from the Best Authorities” Published By S. Augustus Mitchell and “Sold by Mitchell and Hinman.

The map shows the Unites States as far west as Texas (shown as part of Mexico), and to the east portions of the Wisconsin and Missouri Territories, as far south as Florida with 8 inset maps of cities including Albany, Falls of Niagra, New York, Boston, Charleston, Baltimore and Washington, Philadelphia, and Hartford and New Haven. There is also a Table giving the distances between the capital and/or the larges cities of each state.

First published in 1835, and with the same map which extends in the west to the Brazos River in Texas, which is still called Mexico, even though Texas had declared itself a republic in March of 1836. Mexico never recognized Texas as independent, but its independence was recognized by the United States in March of 1837, France in September of 1839, and by Great Britain in November 1840. Interestingly "Missouri Territory" is lettered over tribal designations for Kickapoos, Shawnees, Osages, Cherokees, Creeks, and Choctaws. (Howes)

The Map measures 23 x 18 1/2” and shows some loss to the left corner as show and contains a few neat tape repairs, otherwise the map remains in good bright condition for age.
