Map of North America

Published in Boston by Samuel Walker  :   Engraved by Illman and Pilbrow.

Size of engraved area: 9.50 by 8 inches : Overall size approx. 10.50 by 8.50 inches

An interesting old map of North America published in conjunction with a collection of American topographical views sometime between 1834 and 1850. It is in excellent condition. Large parts of the western portion of the country are shown as part of Mexico. Whidbey Island in Washington State is shown. The Baha Peninsula is shown as California. Alaska is shown as a Russian possession. Many Indian tribes are assigned territories on the map along rivers particularly in the Great Plains region - many interesting details from this authentic antique map.

This print has been cleaned and is free of age toning and foxing spots, a very presentable item!

This is not a modern reproduction or reprint. It is a vintage engraved map of North America, over 150 years old, and guaranteed to be as described.

Steel Engraving: A print produced by carving the lines of an image into a metal plate (copper or steel) with a tool called a burin. The lines produced by the carving are inked, and a dampened sheet of paper is pressed on to the plate. The ink is transferred to the paper producing the image. This type of printing was introduced in the 15th century and is a form of intaglio printing. A wood engraving is made in a similar fashion using wooden plates of oak or beech.
