The map of North America depicts a River of the West, and the map of the United States is shown with its boundary extending to the Mississippi River with numerous land grants identified on the western frontier. The 5 ancient maps include Alexander the Great's conquests, the Roman Empire (2 maps), Ancient Italy, and the Ancient World. The map of the modern world in hemispheres, Italy, and Alexander's route are all folding. Octavo. Bound in modern, stiff paper boards.

Condition Description: The maps, with original outline color, are in very good to near fine condition with occasional light scattered foxing and minor soiling.
