Fascinating mid-19th century antique engraved geology and topography profile map, relating to the exploration and railroad development of the American West.
Minor light toning, edge wear, and small scattered age spotting as typical for maps of this vintage, perhaps small minor paper flaws, but to our eyes and for most people, an entirely acceptable and nice looking example of this antique map.
Original fold lines as issued.
Sheet measures c. 36 1/2" x 11".
Printed area measures c. 35" x 9 1/2".
Oblong folio format.
