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.

I recently purchased a book from you, having searched via the internet. The book came yesterday and this note commends your service and quick response. I was impressed with the care taken to wrap the book with tissue paper and several layers of corrugated cardboard, as well as the speed with which you must have sent it out. It arrived only a week after the order, in spite of the Thanksgiving holiday. I thank you for the attention paid to the quality of my order and hope we will do more business. - Steve C.
