Color: Black & White
Eleven folding maps cover the entire United States, showing and naming all main railway systems, short lines and junctions. Also a full color map of the U.S, showing principal cities, rivers, and mountain ranges, dated 1904. Sizes vary from 14 x 18" to 50.5 x 16". A remarkable set of maps detailing early 19th century railroads. Contains maps for Division I through XI less Division II, but the map marked Map N.E. States appears to be Division II.
Rust colored buckram slipcase with gilt title on leather spine. Boards slightly warped and a little rubbed. Maps are very good, with the US map being just good due to pinholes in margins and some marginal foxing.
