Nice example of this scarce late edition of Brue's map of the Eastern United States, revised by Emile Levasseur and published in Paris.

Includes inset maps of Florida and Newfoundland.

The focal point of the map is the extensive network of railroads in the Eastern United States.

Adrien-Hubert Brué Biography

Andre Hubert Brué was a French geographer and cartographer. Born in Paris, he served in the French Navy, joining the Baudin expedition to the Pacific (1800-1804). After his sea service, Brué applied his navigation and charting skills to creating finely-crafted maps, which were renowned for their crisp engraving and accuracy. He drew directly on the copper of the plate, creating what he called encyprotypes. He is best known for the Atlas universal de géographie physique, politique, ancienne et moderne.
