Colton's Persia, Arabia, Et cetera
This map showing the Arabian Peninsula, Persia (present-day Iran), Afghanistan, Baluchistan (present-day Iran and Pakistan), and adjacent territories was copyrighted in 1855 by J.H. Colton & Company of New York. Coloring is used to indicate borders and certain provinces or settled areas. The map shows cities, mountains, and roads, and includes some notes on topographical features. The old Qatari city of al-Zabarah is shown. The map appeared in other editions of Colton’s General Atlas and reflects the general level of geographic knowledge of the Middle East in mid-19th-century America. Supplementing the map is a one-page political and social description of Persia and its history and geography. It augments other Colton maps found in the World Digital Library covering the same region. J.H. Colton & Company was founded in New York City, most likely in 1831, by Joseph Hutchins Colton (1800–93), a Massachusetts native who had only a basic education and little or no formal training in geography or cartography. He built the firm into a major publisher of maps and atlases by purchasing the copyrights to other maps and republishing them before it began creating its ...
