Description

Rare separately issued map of the United States, apparently the earliest printed map to identify the various Catholic Church Provinces and Dioceses within the United States.

Each of the Provinces are divided by Dioceses, such a the Vicariate-Apostolic of Arizona and the Diocese of Savannah (Georgia), etc. Nearly 100 Dioceses are shown.

While we note later maps of the US showing the Catholic Provinces and Dioceses of the same title (M.H. Wiltzius & Co., 1899), the present map is extremely rare. We note only the example at Benedictine College in Kansas.

Condition Description
With stamp of the Jesuit Chuch and ink stamp at lower right.
