This is a fine print reproduction of a large format map of Colorado detailing surveyed land and the network of railroads during the mid 1870s. Cartographic detail includes established cities, mining towns, military forts, and the delineation of mountain river systems with no attention paid to the topography of the Rocky Mountains. Breckenridge is shown within a Summit County that encompasses the entire northwest portion of the state. Many of these large counties would be broken up and reconfigured as more miners and settlers moved in establishing many new towns along the way.

Asher & Adams was one of the first United States atlases to exclusively feature railroad lines, showing minimal topography. This later edition show more topographical features than did earlier editions. Only towns that were near or on the railroad lines were featured in earlier editions.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
