COLTON, Joseph H.
1800 - 1893
Joseph H. Colton began map publishing New York City in 1833 with a map of New York state by David Burr. Colton published many maps and guidebooks created by others (as did Mitchell).
His firm did create its most popular product Colton's Atlas of the World  in two large volumes. It was followed by the one-volume Colton's General Atlas  which was reissued for 30 years.
