Geological map of the areas surrounding Amherst College
|Lithographer||J.H. Bufford's Lith.|
|Title||Geological map of the areas surrounding Amherst College|
|Caption||The geology around Amherst College|
|Abstract||A hand-colored map of the geology of the towns surrounding Amherst College. Leverett, Hadley, Shutesbury, Amherst, Belchertown, South Hadley, and Granby are shown, with a key demonstrating the types of rock and geological features found in each area. This map was printed in Hitchcock's "Reminiscences of Amherst College" and appears to have been detached from a copy of the book. It is unclear who hand-colored this copy.|
The item itself is undated, but "Reminiscences of Amherst College," in which this map was published, was published in 1863.
This is one of two similar hand-colored maps, both with the same title.
