As my initial offering on MapTrade, I offer a 25% discount off the listed
price, net to all, on the following U. S. State Maps:

The  maps are from Alexander Buchon's Atlas Géographique des Deux
Amériques, published in Paris in 1825.  Buchon basically copied and
translated into French, Carey & Lea's famous 1822 - 23, A Complete
Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas  . . . Indeed
Buchon's atlas is often called the French Carey & Lea although his maps
were re-engraved and printed on larger and heavier paper. These maps all
are well drawn, copperplate engraved and delicately hand colored in
contemporary outline and wash in beautiful pastel shades. While each map is
variously sized, as noted, all have letterpress flanking text within 17 x
24" (43 x 61 cm) neatlines + additional title above the top border.
Condition is Almost Fine or better.
