London: Edward Stanford, 1875. Engraved map on four sheets, full period hand-coloring, sectioned and linen-backed as issued. Inset of the Aleutian Islands. Sheet size: 67 x 57 1/2 inches if joined. Very good. In a red half morocco box. Originally published during the American Civil War, this issue includes additions to 1875, particularly seen in the American West. Curiously, the publisher has retained the original hand-coloring scheme from the Civil War issue, with the Confederate States uniformly colored in purple, and the Union states in yellow; the western states and territories are variously colored. Depicting all of North America, as well as Central American and the Caribbean, the map is accomplished on a large scale (approx. 85 miles to the inch), resulting in impressive detail, showing cities, rivers, roads, forts, peaks and Native American territories. A handsome, large map of the North America from the second half of the 19th century, with an inset of the Aleutian Islands. RUMSEY 0946.
