An attractive map extending from the southern United States to Panama. Mexico is delineated by state and numerous place names and topography are well depicted throughout both Mexico and Central America. The border between the United States and Mexico is still on the Gila River, prior to the Gadsden Purchase (1854). An inset of Panama shows the newly created railroad linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans (operational in 1855).
Nice impression and color with a few faint spots and edge tears confined to the blank margins.
