In this collection are several maps from the College Atlas by H.G. Collins published in 1852, including: North America, South America and the United States. The oldest map in this collection is the map of British North America, published by John Arrowsmith in 1844. This map is particularly interesting as Alaska is shown as Russian America. The United States purchased Alaska from the Russians in 1867. It also shows California as part of Mexico. Mexico eventually ceded California to the United States, becoming the 31st state of the union in 1850.
