Product Description

This original antique map of the Unites States of America comes from Mitchell's Universal Atlas of 1855. A very unusual map in the fact that a detailed inset map of the Californian Gold regions is present. Also many of the proposed railroad routes are here to be seen. This is the first edition published by DeSilver. He had acquired the rights to the Universal Atlas from Cowperthwait in 1855 who in turn had acquired the rights from Mitchell in 1850. This map was published by Charles DeSilver in 1855 at No. 253 Market St. Philadelphia. The paper size for this large double page map is approximately 27" x 17". This authentic vintage map has a blank verso or back side and beautiful hand coloring on sturdy paper. This map is truly a fine piece of American history just prior to the American Civil War. This map would make a fine addition to any collection or for beautiful display in home or office decoration.
