This attractive copper engraved map is surrounded on three sides with French text describing Pennsylvania, its history, products, climates and other information. Buchon produced the French edition of Carey & Lea's American Atlas. He used a better quality paper and today his maps are generally found in better condition than their American counterparts. The dimensions given are for the map only; overall, the large folio sheet measures 24" x 17.5".
A strong sheet with slightly faded original color.
