This attractive copper engraved map details counties (each in full hand coloring), roads and towns. It is surrounded on three sides with French text describing Kentucky - its history, religions, etc. The size given is for the map only; it is on a large folio sheet measuring 27" x 21". 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.
Trace of border offsetting, still fine for this issue with no centerfold splits or other flaws. A beautiful example.
