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 types 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 wall map is scarce as we find only three prior sales in the last 35 years.
The map is lightly toned due to the varnish, which is slightly more pronounced in the upper left quadrant. There is light scattered foxing/staining and a few small abrasions. Both the rollers and ribbon edging is present and intact.
