Notes: source Dimambro] ] Issued c.1850-53, London by John Betts for The London Modern Atlas- (flourished 1844-63, 115 Strand) Scarce and decorative mid 19th century antique map. From a rare atlas which saw only a very limited distribution at the time, nothing like the major U. K. cartographic publishers of the day. The mythical mountain range "Mountains of the Moon" is shown across the central interior Lithographed with original hand color. Note the strong decorative surrounding border, a feature soon to disappear on maps of the era
