North America Mormons named Utah 1875 Flemming scarce folio antique German mapAntiqueMapsPrints.com
(North America- United States- Canada- British North America-Alaska Territory)
Issued 1875, Glogau by C. Flemming
Fine and uncommon original old 19th century color lithographed German map enhanced with original outline hand color. With several old red underlined places names, these also perhaps as issued but if not, undoubtedly old. These locations include San Francisco (presumably for the Gold Rush) as well as naming what seems to be "Mormon S(taat)" in Utah precisely where the
was located. Interesting interior topographical depiction, worthy of comparison for variant states if one locates other examples of this uncommon map.
Scarce folio sheet mid-19th century map.
As originally issued long ago, an actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper, not a modern copy or reprint. The paper sheet could show various minor signs of age, but if we are offering it for sale, you can be 100% certain it is entirely worthy of ownership by even the most discerning collector or dealer.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The scan is a major part of the item description. Please examine it closely, as what you see is what we will send you.
[note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.].
Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper unworthy of specific mention are sometimes to be expected. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully visible within the zoomable scan.
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.
Great old vintage antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display.
A cartographic depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
Original centerfold as issued.
