Lovely map of the region from Nicaragua through Panama. There are three proposed canals and roads shown; two in Panama, and another in Nicaragua. The map is ornamented with two steel-engraved vignettes: The Fort at Chagres and Gold Seekers on their way over the Cordilleras, both designed and engraved by H. Warren and J. Wrightson respectively.
