      Hand col. lithographic map. Counties in full color. Ornamental border. Relief shown by hachures. Shows public land survey system townships. Cover in embossed brown cloth with gold stamping: Topographical map of Colorado. G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co. Advertisement for the company inside cover. An ed. of 1865 published by Jacob Monk with title: Map of the Colorado Territory, showing the system of parks -- almost identical, but specially colored to emphasize the parks. Some place names not appearing on that 1865 ed. include Fort Collins, Greeley, Valmont, Ore City, Cash Creek, San Luis, Costilla, Conejos; others have been changed: Colorado to Colorado City, Frank's town to Franktown, Costilla Co. to Saguache Co. First ed. published in 1862 by Jacob Monk. Wheat: "the first 'indigenous' (Colorado) map of importance...a truly imposing map, a credit to all who had a hand in it..." Ellis lists the 1862 map under Monk, has the copyright which was issued in 1862 (when he published the first ed.). Streeter mentions that the 1862 edition was the first separate map of Colorado and that it also appeared on a smaller scale (18 miles/inch) as an inset in the huge Pratt and Buell "Map of the Gold Regions in...Colorado Territory" of 1862. See note in Rumsey Collection's copy of the 1865 "parks" ed. for additional information.
