Cincinnati city plan 1860-62 Mitchell antique hand color lithograph map

Plan of Cincinnati and Vicinity

Issued 1860-62, by S. A. Mitchell, Philadelphia

Fine original antique hand colored lithographed map. Printed on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.

Map is surrounded by a lovely decorative border.

In near VG or better condition, light minor age wear, overall very presentable and attractive [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].

The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting antique map which will look nice when displayed.

Sheet measures c. 15 1/4" W x 12 3/8" H.

Printed area measures c. 13 1/4"W x 10 5/8" H
