DESCRIZIONE

Hand col. lithograph with 3 insets. Shows buildings, landowners, townships, etc. Inset maps show buildings, lots, landowners, etc. Steinersville at (1:7,200) and Clarington at (1:4,800). This is perhaps the most extraordinary "county atlas" produced in the 19th century. Although it is a regional atlas in scope, covering both sides of the Ohio River from Pittsburgh to Cincinnati, in format it is county atlas with views, maps, and advertising directories of the local towns, cities, residences, and businesses along the river. There are 26 double page maps of the Ohio River, plus an index sheet, that are beautifully drawn and colored, as well as numerous maps of towns and cities on the river. The views frequently show the river and river boat traffic, the inside and outside of factories (an inside view of a glass blowing factory is amazing), and farms and residences. There are large fold out maps of Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. When taken all together, the effect is stunning. This atlas has become rare, with few copies surviving the "breaker's" temptation to cut it up. Rieger rates it "of extraordinary importance" and "extremely scarce." Bound in half leather dark brown cloth covered boards with "Illustrated Atlas Of The Upper Ohio River & Valley. From Pittsburgh Pa. To Cincinnati O. Titus, Simmons & Titus." stamped in gold. Full and outline color.
