A most uncommon pocket map by an obscure publisher is printed on banknote-quality paper. Roughly centered on Munich, it extends to include Marseilles, Paris, London, Copenhagen and east to beyond Cracow. Folds into embossed black envelope-style covers with gilt title. The Kellogg brothers had been publishing black and white views and lithographs for many years, when in 1867 they reorganized as Kellogg and Bulkeley and introduced color printing. A scarce issue.


Condition: B+

A little foxing or staining along one fold. Some small fold intersection splits. Covers a little rubbed at edges.

Estimate: $100 - $150
