This is a rare geological wall map that was published by Sherman & Smith and printed by the S.C. Clark Company. In full original hand coloring with nineteen different geological formations identified through hand coloring. Below the map are four geological sections: Connecticut line to Roxbury; Jones Beach Light House to Oneonta; St. Johns Canada to the Pennsylvania line; and Ogdensburgh NY to Bossburg PA. This fine wall map is scarce as we find only two prior sales.
Varnish is evenly darkened with some areas of light abrasion. On original linen with original rollers fully attached. Nice example.
