Rare topographical map of the Philippines, drawn for the Bureau of Insular Affairs.
In addition to the items listed in the table, the map shows the Hong Kong Cable, Verde Island Passage, Commercial Pacific Cable, Manila & Iloilo Cable (E.E.A. & C.T. Co.), and Iloilo-Cebu Cable (E.E.A. & C.T. Co.).
The map illustrates:
- Completed Roads
- Roads under Construction
- Proposed Lines
- Alternative Routes.
This is the first time we have seen this map in over 20 years.
We have located a record of a 1902 edition of the map, measuring about twice the size, also lithographed by A.B. Graham and dated September 1902.
