Description: Map. Lithograph with hand coloring. Image measures 13.5" x 16.5". Page measures 14.5" x 18".

Comments: This is a wonderful map of the East Coast of Canada. It includes names of cities, sea ports, bays, and mountains. It is especially unusual considering the level of detail in a map of the region made before the civil war. It was published in 1857. There is some staining and minor chips in the margins as well as a fold at the center. A.K. Johnston (1804-1871) was a Scottish geographer and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. Partnered with his brother William, Johnston maintained a prolific map publishing firm throughout the 19th century. Their output ranged from globes, to atlas and wall maps.

Dear Argosy - you've made my day - my order (Netherlands at War, 1940-1945) arrived on my doorstep this morning unheralded and very, very welcome. My sisters and I are Dutch immigrants in New Zealand and we all lived through that war 60 plus years ago as young kids. We had occasion to share what we remembered recently - and now you've supplied the book. I can't tell you what this means... - Dorothea B.
