Lovely map of the region from Nicaragua through Panama. Three proposed railway/canals are shown; two in Panama, and another in Nicaragua. Two steel-engraved vignettes: "The Fort at Chagres" and "Gold Seekers on their way over the Cordilleras."
Good impression and original outline coloring on map, vignettes with later coloring. Printed on thick paper will very good margins. Faint toning at fold, still very good.
