Lovely map of the region from Nicaragua through Panama. Three proposed railway/canals are shown; two in Panama, and another in Nicaragua. Two steel engraved vignettes: "The Fort at Chagres" and "Gold Seekers on their way over the Cordilleras." Surrounded in a decorative border.
A couple of small spots near border that are not distracting.
