"National Map of the American Republic"
Published by Mitchell, 1846
This wonderful reproduction of the original ornately bordered and historical map entitled "National Map of the American Republic or United States of North America Together with Maps of the Vicinites of Thirty-two of the Principal Cities, And Towns In the Union" was published by famed American map maker S. Augustus Mitchell of Philadelphia, circa 1846. A superb example of engraving, it was enlivened with detailed original hand-coloring.
This map is interesting not only for delineating the thirty-two principal cities in the Union, but for the four insets depicting the northeastern boundary of the United States, Florida, part of Texas, and the Oregon Territory as they existed during the middle part of the nineteenth century.
