Antique Wall Map of North, Central America & Mexico
One of the most interesting and attractive 19th century wall maps of North America.This majestic work was done in 1854 by Jacob Monk , as the new country was beginning to expand fully to the Pacific following the land gains after the Mexican War. The gold region in California is remarkably inaccurate with Auburn shown well north of Sacramento City and lying between it and the Marysville & Yuba City area. The Great Basin area is also inaccurate and roughly follows the Fremont model. Filled with wagon routes, explorer's trails, forts, Indian tribes, and so much more. The middle portion of the U.S. is unorganized with only Indian nations named and colored. Much of this area is organized into the Proposed Territory of Nebraska. Minnesota includes Dakota, which is not named. Out west, only California and the territories of Oregon, New Mexico and Utah exist. Includes a table of distances and a table of counties and towns with more than 1,200 names. Has a large inset of the World on Mercator's projection. Embellished with an elaborately decorated border and with numerous engraved sailing and steam/sail ships shown in the oceans. Complete with both original wooden rollers and linen backing. Published by Hoen & Company. Hand-colored, varnished. Wooden rollers attached. 152.4 cm H x157.5 cm W. ( 60" High x 62" Wide ) including decorative border, plus margins. In extremely good condition with minor flaws only. Please study the photos closely before you place your order and ask for any other information you require . This map can truly be studied at length by serious students of history , it invites the viewer to really take their time ! * Color and varnish has peeled off along the left margin about an inch square as shown in the photo. Old fold lines in the body and some wrinkles . Some slight restoration was done about 10 years ago. All in all this map is in very good condition compared to the others I have seen for sale.
