(United States, Maine, Atlantic Ocean, Muscongus Sound, Friendship, St George, Muscongus Bay, Bristol, Bremen)
Edition of 1906, this version issued 1912; Washington D.C., by the U.S. Geological Survey [USGS]
An attractive vintage color lithographed topographical survey chart/ map. This is not a modern copy, it is old, from date listed.
Of particular note because it was linen backed long ago (likely as issued). This makes the map now very sturdy and near indestructible.
Printed in the early 20th century, on quality paper which has slightly gently age toned as always, but which remains sound, mostly very clean & well preserved.
A detailed map worthy of display- a chart not often seen and no longer printed on paper by the Government.
In near VG or better condition; could be short minor edge splits now closed on back with archival tape, some minor normal paper wrinkling, light uniform minor age toning to sheet as typical, an old red institutional rubber stamp or old hand writing in the blank side margin as is clearly visible in the photo, and trivial scattered staining, spotting or foxing. Overall the printed area of the map remains clean, well preserved and attractive.
Great vintage chart for display with a profusion of topographical detail which has no doubt changed with the passage of time.
A fascinating and stunningly detailed vintage map which any collector, dealer, institution or person of artistic taste would be happy to own and display.
Sheet measures c. 19 3/4 " H x 15 1/4" W.
