Map of the World on The Mercator Projection, Exhibiting the American Continent As Its Centre

Decorative mid 19th Century map of the world, with an interesting twist, in that the Americas are at the center of the map.

Shows the tracks of the various 18th & 19th Century explorers, including Cook, Gore, US Ex Ex, Ross, and Clarke.

Samuel Augustus Mitchell Jr. inherited the Mitchell Company from his father in 1860. For over thirty years, the company had specialized in the production of school atlases and wall maps of America. They were one of the pioneers on engraving on steel plates. In 1860, Samuel Jr. released the New General Atlas, which had been compiled in house and replaced a previous atlas by Tanner. The elder Mitchell died in 1868 and Samuel Jr. continued the business until the 1890s. At its height, the Mitchell Company employed 250 people and sold 400,000 publications annually.
