This double-page map includes Texas and New Mexico Territory in pre-1863 configuration with no mention of Arizona. The map extends to include the southern states, all of the Caribbean and Bahama Islands, and a good deal of northeastern South America. Excellent detail throughout Mexico and Central America. The Baja Peninsula is here called Lower California. Four insets show Cuba, Jamaica, Bermuda Islands and a map of the Panama Railroad.
Very fine impression, bright coloring and full, original margins. Map is fine less some scattered centerfold toning or staining.
