PHELPS & ENSIGN'S GUIDE MAP OF UNITED STATES 1843
This is a large wall map dated 1843 by Phelp's and Ensign a New York map maker before the Civil War.It is 26 by 38 and would have originally been a roll up wall map.It is currently framed in a simple wide black moulding under plexiglass as we found it. The map is in quite good condition other than some water staining to the top left corner and across the bottom of the map. There is some minor wrinkles from being a roll up map but there is no paper loss.Quite a rare map I could only find 2 for sale at quite a bit more than I am asking.This was one of the first maps to show the Missouri territory and it is in a very odd configuration. Texas is also quite unusual. If you need more pics let us know I had a hard time getting a good full shot because of the glare. The staining looks worse in the photos than in real life.
