Description: Map. Wax engraving (cerograph). Image measures 16.25 x 21.5".

Comments: This map of the United States dates the outset of the Civil War, when many of the western territories were still unclear in both their boundaries and allegiances. Nebraska, Oregon, and Utah are all significantly larger than their current incarnations. The Baja Peninsula is labeled as "Old California," and a part of present-day Oklahoma is named as "Indian Territory." Within these borders, defined as they are by light pastel coloring, the map offers fine topographical detail particularly of the mountainous west. The precision of cerography, or wax engraving, also benefits the West Indies, which are rendered meticulously even at such a small scale. The map appeared in A. Fullarton & Co.'s "World Atlas." It is in very good condition with very minor foxing to the center seam and margins. No chips or years and overall very clean. Archibald Fullarton was a prominent Glasgow-based publisher who worked under the firm of A. Fullarton & Co. This map is a fine example of his work.

Howdy and Happy Fourth of July. Just want to let you know that the Dick Grace book came. A nice copy, as promised. Grace was quite a fellow: the only person I ever heard of who crashed planes for a living and died of old age. I was in The Argosy once, years ago, 1997 or so. Hope to get in again one of these days, but NYC is a long way from here. Thanks again for helping me out with this. Best - Bob H.
