Colton's early map of Florida from Colton’s 1856 Atlas of the World, published by J. H. Colton. Like most of Colton's state maps, this map is largely derived from an earlier wall map of North America produced by Colton and D. Griffing Johnson. In this particular case, Colton has augmented his map with the plat work done by the Florida branch of the U.S. Land Survey. Of particular interest is the Arredondo Grant which Colton identifies in the northern part of the peninsula. The Arredondo Grant is a layover of the Spanish Land Grant program, which bequeathed it to a powerful Spanish merchant - Arredondo. With incredible difficulty and protest, the land grants were dissolved when Florida became part of the United States. Nonetheless the Arredondo Grand proved tenacious appearing on mappings of this region well into the late 19th century. This map further identifies various cities, towns, forts, rivers, rapids, fords, and an assortment of additional topographical details. An inset in the lower left quadrant details the Florida Keys. Light water stain in lower left corner mostly in margin. Two repaired edge tears. Few very small spots in image. Excellent hand color. 12.75 x 15.625.
