Fine and uncommon original antique color lithographed print.

Of particular interest for the map of North America printed on the same sheet as 3 other images, one of which depicts early postage stamps of the world, including a stamp of the United States. Two other images are done in color lithography. A rare survival.

A picture is worth a thousand words. The photos are a major part of the item description. Please examine them 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 overall clean & sound, light signs of age typical to all old sheets of printed paper. The photographs or scan provided should capture the appearance better than words.

Old 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 print entirely worthy of hanging for display.

A visual depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.

Sheet measures c.  15 5/8" H x  12 1/8" W.
