A large and truly beautiful map of the continent on two sheets, unjoined. The considerable detail includes civil divisions, populations and the extent of each nation. Fancy Victorian titling and keyboard-style borders surround the map. Joined size would be approximately 30" x 42". A very fine example.

Fabulous impression and striking original color. Trace of very light toning along one centerfold, still fine.
