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.
Attractive original color on a very sturdy sheet with just a few faint spots and light soiling along the edges of the sheet.
