Nice example of one of the rarest and most decorative French Maps of the US from the mid-19th Century.
The map includes Classic Territorial Cartography of the period, including Oregon and Washington Territories extending to the Rocky Mountains, post-Gadsden Purchase border with Mexico, although the pre-Purchase border is also shown. Massive Utah and New Mexico Territorial configurations, Kansas extends to Colorado and Nebraska runs to Canada. Excellent detail in Texas, including early roads.
. Elegantly colored, with Garnier's tradmark title vignette. Garnier's atlas is rare and highly sought after for its fine colors and elegant engraving style.
