Nice example of Rufus Sage's monumental map of the United States.
Shows historical events on a large map of the Eastern United States from Columbus to about 1840. Six inset facsimiles of early maps. A tablet of history is mounted on the verso.
The map was published for the Centennial celebrations and reflects Blanchard's growing interest in American history during the mid 1870's. With land hand painted in full color, and water printed in blue color.
