Map of the Southern States, including Rail Roads, County Towns, State Capitals, County Roads, The Southern Coast from Delaware to Texas, showing the harbors, inlets, forts and position of blockading ships -IN FULL ISSUE OF Harper's Weekly November 9 1861.
Harper's Weekly. New York. 11-09- 1861. - Large woodengraved map on sheet 22 x 31 1/2 inches, two folds as issued to fold into the magazine, one tiny foxing spot just below the city of Montgomery, short split to right end of horizontal centrefold, otherwise very good condition. In complete (disbound) issue of Harper's Weekly magazine (very good condition.) An impressive map of the southern states, published in the great American weekly newspaper "Harper's Weekly" seven months after the Civil War began, so that readers could follow the events of the War; the instructions in the text - "Such of our readers as wish to keep "posted" on the progress of the war will do well to paste or otherwise fasten this map on a large board against a wall" - no doubt help to explain the scarce nature of this map. The decorative border features portraits of Lincoln, Seward, McClellan and Scott at the corners. The text points out that the map "covers the whole area involved in the conflict, from Northern Missouri to Texas, and from the boundary of Kansas and the Indian Reserve to the Atlantic shores. It is printed clearly and legibly, and great care has been taken to mark every river and road in the sections now occupied by the armies." [Attributes: Soft Cover]
