Despite this 1855 map depicting only the lower peninsula of Michigan, its color, detail, and border illustration do not disappoint. Published by J.H. Colton, the map identifies common roads, towns, railroads, canals, rivers, lakes, and counties. In the top right corner, the map is noted as No. 42, specifying its page number in G.W. Colton's Atlas of the World, Vol. 1, 1855.
