Map of Montana, Idaho & Wyoming, from Colton's Atlas, Antique Hand-Colored, 1876



This is a remarkable large format map of the Territories of Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho, from a scarce late edition of Colton's Atlas. Published in 1876, the map shows these western states at their early stages of settlement, before any of them had gained official statehood. The results of the earliest state surveys are shown. Wyoming is shown with only 6 counties, Idaho has 13 counties, and Montana has 2 counties. Many Native American tribes, forts, military reservations, towns are depicted, as well as prominent rivers, mountains, lakes. The railroad lines with each station are identified. G. W. & C. B. Colton was a prominent family company of mapmakers who led the market in the American map trade during the 19th century. The business was founded by Joseph Hutchins Colton (1800-1893). By the 1850s, their output expanded to include original maps, guidebooks, atlases, and railroad maps. Joseph was succeeded by his sons, George Woolworth (1827-1901) and Charles B. Colton (1831-1916), at which time firm was renamed G. W. & C. B. Colton. Condition: Map is in good condition with original hand-coloring. The map has been archivally framed to the highest conservation standards in a custom-built frame.
