    This large map of the United States is color-coded to show 14 Catholic archdioceses which have been subdivided into 87 dioceses. It displays the location of each archbishop and bishop with red overprinting. A large table below the map lists the names of each diocese with relevant population statistics. The map was published by The Society of Foreign Missions of Paris, a Roman Catholic missionary institute founded in 1658. Its purpose was to evangelize foreign lands (primarily in Asia and North America) with the goal of adapting the church to local customs and establishing a native clergy. The group is still active today primarily in Asia.

Condition Description: A clean and bright example with one small split at a fold intersection. Issued folding.
