The scarce last edition listed in Phillips of Mitchell's New Universal Atlas (although we have seen a copy of a title page of the same atlas dated 1862, published by Charles Desilver). The maps still bear the copyright and imprint of Charles Desilver, but his address on most of the maps is changed from 251 Market Street to 714 Chestnut Street. Several of the maps have changes from the 1858 edition: New Jersey has new railroads, Washington D.C. has the column of References redone, North Carolina and South Carolina have been completely redrawn by J.L. Hazard, Mississippi had new railroads, Minnesota is a throwback to the 1857 edition with "Minnesota Territory" as the title, and there are subtle changes in many other maps indicating that even at this late date there was an attempt to keep the atlas current. This edition marks the end of the New Universal Atlas run, which started twenty three years earlier with the Tanner first edition of 1836. Bound in half leather red cloth covered boards with "Mitchell's Universal Atlas" and an elaborate border stamped in gold on the front and "Universal Atlas. Mitchell." on spine. Maps in full color.
